MEDIA REVIEWS
"This work offers the fullest in-depth socioeconomic history of Pine Ridge published to date and makes a valuable contribution to the literature on 20th-century American Indian history. Its strength lies in the integration of oral history and the author's own interview material with the written record. Highly recommended for academic libraries at every level.."
-D.R. Parlks, Indiana University- Bloomington, for "CHOICE
"Paul Robertson brings to this book two strong credentials: meticulous archival research and two decades of experience living and teaching on the Pine Ridg Reservation. He documents more thoroughly than any previous author the processes and consequences of colonialism for the Oglalas and present s a convincing case for the total failure of the BIA even to attempt to fulfill its trust responsibilities.."
-Western Historical Quarterly
"Robertson documents more thoroughly than any previous author the processes and consequences of colonialism for the Oglalas, and presents a convincing case for the total failure of the BIA even to attempt to fulfill its trust responsibilities. The indictment of BIA policies and practices makes this volume a particularly valuable case study.."
-Raymond J. DeMallie, Indiana University
