Native Claims

Indigenous Law against Empire, 1500-1920

Edited by Saliha Belmessous

  • A major interdisciplinary study with a wide sweep of time and place
  • Challenges the long-held idea that indigenous peoples were largely passive outsiders in the legal contest over colonization, particularly in the early encounters that led to their dispossession
  • Argues that indigenous people around the world challenged European colonialism not only with force with ideas
  • Written by experts in the fields of legal history, social history, history of political thought, literature, and philosophy
