Hollow Justice: A History of Indigenous Claims in the United States (Henry Roe Cloud Series on American Indians and Modernity) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book, the first of its kind, comprehensively explores Native American claims against the United States government over the past two centuries. Despite the federal government’s multiple attempts to redress indigenous claims, a close examination reveals that even when compensatory programs were instituted, Native peoples never attained a genuine sense of justice. David E. Wilkins addresses the important question of what one nation owes another when the balance of rights, resources, and responsibilities have been negotiated through treaties. How does the United States assure that guarantees made to tribal nations, whether through a century old treaty or a modern day compact, remain viable and lasting?

About the Author

David E. Wilkins holds the McKnight Presidential Professorship in American Indian Studies at the University of Minnesota, where he is also adjunct professor of political science, law, and American studies. He lives in Minneapolis, MN.
