Parman brings fresh life to some well-worked topics, while illuminating lesser-known developments of the postwar period and contextualizing Indian concerns within broader governmental and social dynamics. Both specialists and general readers will appreciate his succinct, informed treatment of `the Indian problem' in the United States." -Gateway Heritage

Parman's accomplishment lies in his ability to synthesize the saga of the numerous interactions among those seeking dominance.... Parman's balanced and comprehensive overview provides a handy guide to the subject for upper-division undergraduate and graduate collections." -Choice

Indians and the American West in the Twentieth Century is an important contribution to understanding the development of the West and provides a clear and impressive analysis of evolving government policy and programs that impacted directly on the resident Indian people." -American Indian Culture and Research Journal

This is an impressive effort that provides the reader with a balanced view of a subject that tends to become polemic." -Books of the Southwest

The well-written and analytical narrative is backed with thirty-nine pages of notes and bibliography, which provide an enormous complement and establish a firm foundation of scholarship." -Nebraska History

This book is an important contribution that manages to give the reader a bird's-eye view of the regularities of twentieth-century Indian history, while at the same time conveying the local twists, complexities, and ironies of that history and of any generalizations we would make about it.... should be read by all scholars in Native American studies and American minority history." -Journal of American History

Parman's thoughtful book will be of interest to students, scholars, and anyone remotely interested in Indian-white relations during the twentieth century." -Pacific Historical Review

An appraisal that is both clear and balanced." -Margaret
