Felix S. Cohen's Handbook of Federal Indian Law.
Cohen, Felix S.
The following is taken from the Publisher's Note: "Long out of print since it was originally published in 1942 by the U.S. Government Printing Office, this classic work on Federal Indian law, and the whole legal history of Indian-white relations, is here republished in a facsimile edition. It is, as Felix Frankfurter observed, the only book that has ever made sense and order from 'the vast hodgepodge of treaties, statutes, judicial and administrative rulings, and unrecorded practice in which the intricacies and perplexities, confusions and injustices of the law governing Indians lay concealed.'...This handbook should not be confused with the vulgate version issued by the Government Printing Office in 1958, and since then reprinted by 2 other publishers. That expurgated edition was rewritten, according to its introduction, 'for the purpose of foreclosing, if possible, further uncritical use of the earlier  edition by judges, lawyers, and laymen.'"
