In A Narrow Vision, Brian Titley chronicles Scott's career in the Department of Indian Affairs and evaluates developments in Native health, education, and welfare between 1880 and 1932. He shows how Scott's response to challenges such as the making of treaties in northern Ontario, land claims in British Columbia, and the status of the Six Nations caused persistent difficulties and made Scott's term of office a turbulent one. Scott could never accept that Natives had legitimate grievances and held adamantly to the view that his department knew best.

Titley has done Canadian scholarship a great service by opening up this area of scholarship to Canadian historians. It is indeed a fine book. -- David McNab * Native Studies Review *
An important book ... puts the problems facing Canada's native population into better perspective. It should be required reading for all members of the Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development. -- Allan Levine * Globe and Mail *
