Green, Donald E., Ed.; Tonnesen, Thomas V., Ed.
This book discusses legal and social aspects of public policy in American society and their relationship to fulfilling the promise of social justice for American Indians. U.S. public policy is viewed as reflecting the collective sentiments of the electorate. If the American people have the will to bring about change in the socioeconomic conditions of American Indians, it will be evidenced in public policies.

Barsh; "The Concept of Sovereignty: The Key to Social Justice," by Sharon O'Brien; "Organizing for Self-Determination: Federal and Tribal Bureaucracies in an Era of Social and Policy Change," by Paul H. Stuart; "The Persistence of Identity in Indian Communities of the Western Great Lakes," by Donald L. Fixico; "The Delivery of Health Care to American Indians: History, Policies and Prospects," by Jennie Joe; "The Education of American Indians: Policy, Practice and Future Direction," by John W.
