From its inception, American Indian Law has merged jurisprudence, history, comparative law, ethnology, and sociology to bring meaning to the tribal-federal relationship. The purposes of the American Indian Law: Native Nations and the Federal System book are to:

Survey the major doctrines in the field of Indian law;
Provide a wide-ranging inquiry into the role of law and legal processes, both domestic and international, in protecting or frustrating the desires for political and cultural autonomy of various racial, cultural, religious, or national subgroups within a society, and;
Accurately portray Indian tribal perspectives and voices on questions of federal Indian law.

This edition represents a complete revision and reorganization of the book, which, among other things, seeks to present Indian voices in the portrayal and evaluation of federal Indian law. While developed primarily as a teaching and learning tool, this edition is also a research sourcebook that purchasers can use long after they have completed their law school studies.

Chapter 1 introduces the basic problem of federal Indian law, establishing an appropriate model for the tribal-federal relationship. Chapter 2 focuses attention on cross-cutting themes in federal Indian law such as the legal definitions applied to who is an Indian or tribal member, what is an Indian tribe, and what land constitutes Indian country. Chapters 3 through 5 focus attention on the competition for legal authority and power in Indian country among the three sovereign authorities - the tribal government, the federal government, and the state government. Chapters 6 through 8 focus attention on the legal protections afforded Indian property and resource rights and the manner in which the law facilitates or frustrates the development of those resources. Chapter 9 examines international legal protections and comparative models of the treatment of indigenous peoples.
