Current stock: 0


American Indian Politics and the American Political System is the most comprehensive text on the subject written from a political science perspective. The authors analyze the structures and functions of Indigenous governments (including Alaska Native communities and Native Hawaiians) and the distinctive legal and political rights these nations exercise internally. They also examine the fascinating intergovernmental relationship that exists between native nations, the states, and the federal government.

The fourth edition reflects the latest developments in American Indian politics and current statistical data, including:

  • Analysis of the impacts of new legislation and recent Supreme Court decisions in Indian Country
  • Increased attention to the impact of media, assessing both Indigenous responses to cultural appropriation and mascots, and the use of social media for political organizing and activism
  • New coverage of Indigenous responses to climate change and environmental justice
  • Discussion of continued contestation about land and knowledge, with particular attention to conflicts between indigenous epistemology and science
  • An examination of how transnational activism impacts and shapes Indigenous relations with the U.S. government
