Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for the previous editions: "Francis Paul Prucha ... has made a real contribution to American Indian historiography by providing this selection of 'essential documents which marked significant formulations of policy in the conduct of Indian affairs by the United States government.' ... [The selections] include treaties, legislative enactments, judicial decisions, executive statements, and extracts from official commissions and committees which 'illustrate the history of the relations between the United States government and the American Indians from the founding of the nation to the present time.' Each entry is prefaced with an introductory paragraph explaining the document and is included in a very detailed index. A valuable selective bibliography concludes the volume."--American Indian Quarterly. "The documents selected by Father Prucha constitute an excellent and convenient reference work. No major law is missing... Documents of United States Indian Policy is a volume of utmost utility to all whose interest touches upon Native Americans and their history."--American Indian Culture and Research Journal

About the Author

Francis Paul Prucha is a professor of history (emeritus) at Marquette University. His many publications include The Great Father: The United States Government and the American Indians, Atlas of American Indian Affairs, and Handbook for Research in American History, all available from the University of Nebraska Press.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A very handy reference guide, as well as an excellent starting point for the convoluted history of US/Indian Treaties, and Acts. It is chronoligically ordered, and contains synopses of the Treaties and Acts. The next book I'd like to find is a summary of the extent to which all treaties have been violated by the US government.

It's not exhaustive, but it's a good starting point for major issues such as the policies on Indian Education which, incidentally, originated from the purpose of protecting the Indians from swindling whites by arming them with English and mutated to the Indian School policy of "Kill the Indian, Save the Man" through language and cultural extinction that has continued through the present under the guise of such programs as "No Child Left Behind."
