The Return of the Native

American Indian Political Resurgence

Stephen Cornell

A sympathetic and incisive look at American Indian and Euro-American relations since the 16th century, this book focuses on how such relations have shaped Native American political identity and tactics. By paying particular attention to the evolution of Indian groups as collective actors and to changes over time in Indian political opportunities and their capacities to act upon them, Cornell traces the Indian path from power to powerlessness and back to power again.
