Indian Gaming: Tribal Sovereignty and American Politics (Paperback)W. Dale Mason (author)
Dale Mason demonstrates how, through their pro-gaming activities, Indian tribes act as both political entities and interest groups, while protecting their right to self-govern. He also reveals the role of United States Attorneys' discretionary authority on Indian lands and the role of tribal attorneys in Indian politics.
Legalized gambling on Indian lands and reservations is an increasingly important component of tribal economic and political life. Although Indian gaming accounts for only 5 percent of all gambling in the United States, it has become the issue for tribes in the 1990s. It is a new source of tribal-state conflict and the debates will continue well into the twenty-first century.
