Deloria, Vine, Jr.
This work brings together over 25 years of the work of Vine Deloria, Jr, once dubbed "the red man's Ralph Nader," now regarded as one of the most important living Native American figures in the late 1990s. For the past 30 years, Deloria has offered contributions to understanding the complexity of religion in America. In his writings he recognizes the spiritual desperation and religious breakdown in the contemporary situation, and provides the groundwork to get people to examine what they actually believe and how they must put those beliefs into practice. The essays in this collection express Deloria's concern for the religious dimensions and implications of human existence. His writings are engaged within a theoretical system of physical, not ideological, space, and ultimately give voice to this intellectual passion by calling into question our controversial religious institutions, commitments, worldviews, freedoms and experiences. 311pp. N.B.

Edited By Mishler,Craig and Simeone,William E.
One of Alaska's premier ethnographers, Robert A. McKennan (1903-1982) spent the years between 1929 and 1933 in several remote Native villages where he documented Interior Athabaskan life in a series of books and journals. McKennan's journals are an extraordinary window onto Athabaskan culture before it was radically transformed by social changes following World War II. While McKennan's two major ethnographies - on the Tanana and the Gwich'in (Kutchin) - represent the scientific aspects of his work, his voluminous letters and journals form an equally significant part of anthropology's humanistic tradition. McKennan chronicles his day-to-day struggles to survive in the Alaska wilderness, giving readers a fascinating personal memoir of a dedicated researcher and sensitive observer. Historic photographs, maps and a bibliography of McKennan's publications honour his legacy and highlighting his lasting contributions to Alaska Native history and anthropology. 266pp.

Previous owner's signature on ffep.What is multiculturalism? The word is used everywhere, often without being clearly defined. This text offers critiques of the term and its uses by leading scholars in sociology, history, literary criticism, popular culture studies, ethnic studies, and critical legal studies. The contributors look at current uses of the rubric "multicultural" and offer analyses of complex relationships between popular culture, political events, and intellectual trends. Featuring essays by authors, activists, artists, and theoreticians, this book represents a range of multicultural studies today through essays that demarcate the cutting edge of contemporary cultural politics. 491pp.
