This important work goes beyond conventional accounts of the recognition of indigenous rights. Building on critical pluralist theories, Anker challenges us to re-imagine ways of thinking law(s), and in so doing takes us to the heart of the problem of legal encounters which has proven such an intractable issue in Australia, Canada and elsewhere.'Shaunnagh Dorsett, University of Technology, Sydney, Australia'In this book, Anker provides a comprehensively researched, beautifully written and passionately argued case for adopting her innovative critical discursive legal pluralist approach to the question of the legal relationship between indigenous peoples and the modern state.'Anthony J. Connolly, Australian National University, Australia
