Full legal sovereignty includes the power to make decisions about relations with other nations and control of internal government functions. The essays in this volume offer a sampling of different kinds of political, economic, and social sovereignty, conveying the diverse opinions about sovereignty among Native American and non-Native American scholars. Moreover, they show how historically, how sovereignty has a modern meaning. Federal policy toward Native American nations today is ostensibly one of self-determination. It is the subject of an important debate that provides the focus of this collection of how this Federal policy fits into the Native American ideal for sovereignty.Wunder, John R. is the author of 'Native American Sovereignty', published 1999 under ISBN 9780815336297 and ISBN 0815336292.
