In this fascinating portrait of American Indian education over the past century, the authors critically evaluate U.S. education policies and practices--from early 20th century federal incarnations of colonial education through the contemporary standards movement. In the process, they reveal the falseness of fears attached to notions of "dangerous cultural difference," and convey the promise of diversity as a source of national strength.
