Fostering State-Tribal Collaboration: An Indian Law Primer surveys federal Indian law in order to facilitate collaborative policy development between the states and Native American tribes. Wilkins addresses civil and criminal jurisdiction, taxation, the Indian Child Welfare Act and other human services issues, environmental regulation, Indian gaming and revenue sharing, intergovernmental agreements and limited waivers of sovereign immunity, encouraging a move away from conflict and litigation and towards communication and collaboration. She provides a historical context for the existing law and foundational knowledge to foster programs and policies that meet the needs of all citizens and engage in successful cross-jurisdictional policy development. Unlike most other authors of texts on Indian law, who write for academics or lawyers, Wilkens explains current issues using practical, jargon-free language, making her book of immediate practical value to policymakers and students.
