    1. This book is excellent both in law and history. If you have an interest in the rights of American Indians and the tribes in general you will really enjoy this book.

    2. I learned that tribal legal status began as sovereign [self-government] that differed from that of other cultural groups predating the establishment of the US.

    3. Excellent book. Difficult read as its long and detailed but I loved it. Covers history and law from past to present - makes an excellent reference document with everything in one place. Everything you always wanted to know about Tribal Law but didn't know where to look.

    4. The most boring offer from Modern Scholar. I was interested in the subject and I know of some interesting cases, but this isn't the entry point I would recommend.
