Product Description


'Harring has given us a most penetrating and comprehensive account of the treatment of Indians in nineteenth-century Canadian courts. He illuminates brilliantly how the judges' application of the rule of law, an essential element in the 'liberal treatment' of Indians, can serve as a blunt instrument for the dispossession and subjugation of Aboriginal peoples'

(Peter H. Russell, Professor Emeritus, Faculty of Political Science, University of Toronto)
