Description - Deadliest Enemies by Thomas Biolsi

Racial tension between Native American and white people on and near reservations is an ongoing problem in the USA. This work examines the history of troubled relations on and around the Rosebud reservation in South Dakota since 1970 and asks why the hostilities began. The study traces the origins of racial tension between Native Americans and whites to federal laws themselves, showing how courts have created opposing political interests along race lines.
