indianpolicyFalvey recently acquired the online edition of the Encyclopedia of U.S. Indian Policy and Law. Edited by Paul Finkelman and Tim Garrison and published in 2009 by CQ Press, this encyclopedia examines the history and impact of U.S. relations with Native Americans. Entries cover many topics relating to U.S./Native American relations, from history, politics, and sociology to civil rights and culture. The first volume includes eight overview chapters over U.S. Indian policy starting with the Indian policy of the Continental Congress. Entries cover a wide variety of topics from The Census to Environment and Environmental Protection. All entries are signed and include recommended readings and cross-references. Maps, statistics and documents such as the Native American Grave Protection and Repatriation Act from 1990 can be found in the appendices. The Quick Search feature can be used to locate keywords anywhere in the full text of the online encyclopedia.
