Alaskan Rural Justice: A Selected Annotated Bibliography.
Alaska Judicial Council, Anchorage.
This annotated bibliography lists approximately 300 documents and source materials directly or indirectly related to the problem of access to justice in rural Alaska. Written materials about the state's history, geography, economics, and culture have often touched upon the justice system and its role in the development of the state. Other works have focused specifically on the courts and law enforcement, detailing the problems created by resource allocation, political exigencies, and commingling of cultures. This bibliography includes annotations for books, articles, reports, letters, agency records, diaries, and films. Entries are categorized under: agency and commission reports; alcohol abuse and treatment; alternate dispute resolutions (tribal courts, judgment boards, and village councils); anthropological, cultural, and sociological studies; bibliographies and source materials; Bush Justice Conference reports; Canadian rural justice; children, families, and the Indian Child Welfare Act; grand jury reports; health, education, and welfare; judicial administration, judiciary, and court system; justice system and rural justice; law enforcement and corrections; rural governmental structure; sovereignty and the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act; and subsistence, fish, and game. Within each subject area, entries appear alphabetically by author. Each entry contains author, title, publisher, publication date, document source, length, summary (the purpose of the document and the findings of the project), and, if appropriate, the document's effect on rural justice. An alphabetical author and title index is included. (SV)
