Product Description

Review

'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)

About the Author

Sidney L. Harring is Professor of Law at CUNY Law School, Queen's College, City University of New York. He is the author of Crow Dog's Case: American Indian Soverignty, Tribal Law, and United States Law in the Nineteenth Century (Cambridge University Press, 1994).
