In this updated edition of Treaty Talks in British Columbia, Christopher McKee traces the origins and development of treaty negotiations in the province. Through an examination of Native concerns, he analyzes conflicting points of view and suggests alternatives for achieving consensus.

The new edition includes:

an overview of the Supreme Court of Canada's 1997 decision in Delgamuukw, and the impact of that ruling on Native peoples' bargaining power and on government policy initiatives;a review of the Nisga'a Final Agreement and the main criticisms of the deal;a discussion of the main components of the Sechelt Agreement-in-Principle, and whether or not the agreement can guarantee certainty in land tenure regimes; andan analysis of the treaty-making process in the 21st century, focusing on the implications of a change in government in Victoria, territorial overlap among First Nations' treaty settlement lands, and the costs of treaty-making in the post-Nisga'a era.

Treaty Talks in British Columbia offers significant insights into a contentious issue. It will be a valuable resource for those interested in contemporary Aboriginal issues, Native studies, political science, and law, and for anyone who wishes to develop a better understanding of the future relationship between Native and non-Native British Columbians.
