Sovereign Nations or Reservations?
An Economic History of American Indians
By Terry L. Anderson
Economic analysis debunks the romantic image of American Indians by asserting that historically,
American Indian culture was similar to modern Western cultures in its respect for property rights.
Anderson calls for increased self-determination, sovereignty and radical reform for American Indians.
