Deborah Du Nann Winter came to Whitman College in 1974, fresh from graduate school at the University of New Hampshire. Having grown up in LA, she was glad to return to the West, and discover the Brigadoon of the 1950s, Walla Walla, where time seems to stand still. She teaches Social Psych, Counseling Psych, Historical and Contemporary Issues, Peace Psychology, and like everyone in the department, the Principles course. We have more of her library available. Proceeds from the sale of this book benefit the Penrose Memorial Library at Whitman College.

More Description

Ten original essays focus on the rise, change, and persistence of the Native American reservation system. Contributors drawn from history, anthropology, sociology, and political science offer divergent points of view buttressed by historical and ethnographic case studies. Together, these articles suggest that the time has come--or is long overdue--to rethink the basic assumptions underlying Federal Indian policy.
