Beschreibung

Drawing on interviews, democratic theory, and extensive archival research, Paul C. Rosier focuses on the internal political, economic, and ethnic forces shaping the Blackfeet Nation during the first half of the twentieth century. Incorporating Blackfeet voices throughout his study, Rosier shows how transformations were not imposed on the Blackfeet but were the result of their continuing efforts to create a community of their own design and to reorganize relations with outsiders on their own terms. "Rebirth of the Blackfeet Nation, 1912-1954" illuminates a pivotal time in modern Indian-white relations and broadens our understanding of the meaning of democracy in America.

Pressestimmen

"This book rightfully deserves a prominent place in the Indian New Deal canon." Theodore Binnema, American Indian Culture and Research Journal "In this important new work, Paul Rosier looks deeply into the dynamics of the Blackfeet community as the group adapted to reservation life... This is a thorough, balanced, and conceptually sound analysis." Larry Burt, Western Historical Quarterly "An outstanding book on one tribe's experience of their internal struggles in embracing the 1934 Indian Reorganization Act and the termination era of the early 1950s." George Heavy Runner, American Studies "A long overdue addition to the sparse scholarship on Native political and economic activism in the twentieth century." Melissa L. Meyer, American Historical Review "Dense, detailed, and rewarding." Stephen Cornell, Journal of Interdisciplinary History "Rosier's book is excruciatingly revealing, honest, and important... Rosier's work is an eloquent account of a people who have been through the worst of times and still view every day as one of promise." Darrel Robes Kipp, Great Plains Quarterly "Dense, detailed, and rewarding." Stephen Cornell, Journal of Interdisciplinary History "Rosier's book is excruciatingly revealing, honest, and important... Rosier's work is an eloquent account of a people who have been through the worst of times and still view every day as one of promise." Darrel Robes Kipp, Great Plains Quarterly
