Reviews

"In a series of subtle but incisive engagements with major works of contemporary Native American and Canadian fiction, Christie develops a vision of the shared sovereign horizon they offer their readership that is all the more compelling for its combination of informed astuteness, self-exacting critical humility, and full acknowledgment of these novelists awareness of the challenges posed for cultural survival in post-Columbia North America." - Lawrence Buell, Harvard University

"This is a liberating work of scholarship of hemispheric proportions; well researched and well written, it offers reconsideration of classic works in the canon, and astute readings of authors whose work has moved the canon into the new millennium." - John Purdy, Editor, American Review of Canadian Studies; Editor Emeritus, Studies in American Indian Literatures

"Christie s rich cross-weaving of law and literature produces exciting, provocative, and far-reaching readings of how contemporary Native and First Nations novels document plural sovereignties. Its nimble negotiation of multiple discourses of indigenous sovereignty offers a compelling model of contemporary Native literary analysis." - Susan Bernardin, SUNY Oneonta

"Christie s analysis of plural sovereignties in contemporary indigenous literature is a well-documented and insightful study, providing an impetus for constructing (in the words of Harold Cardinal) a bridge of understanding between two worlds that exist as separate realities. " - Ginny Carney, Interim President, Leech Lake Tribal College

"Christie offers fresh but informed theory regarding indigenous identities and applies that theory in close critical readings of selecteed contemporary indigenous writers . . . Recommended." - Choice
