Responding to anti-Indianism in America, the wide-ranging perspectives culled in Unlearning the Language of Conquest present a provocative account of the contemporary hegemony still at work today, whether conscious or unconscious. Four Arrows has gathered a rich collection of voices and topics, including: Waziyatawin Angela Cavender Wilson's "Burning Down the House: Laura Ingalls Wilder and American Colonialism," which probes the mentality of hatred woven within the pages of this iconographic children's literature. Vine Deloria's "Conquest Masquerading as Law," examining the effect of anti-Indian prejudice on decisions in U.S. federal law. David N. Gibb's "The Question of Whitewashing in American History and Social Science," featuring a candid discussion of the spurious relationship between sources of academic funding and the types of research allowed or discouraged. Barbara Alice Mann's "Where Are Your Women? Missing in Action," displaying the exclusion of Native American women in curricula that purport to illuminate the history of Indigenous Peoples. Bringing to light crucial information and perspectives on an aspect of humanity that pervades not only U.S. history but also current sustainability, sociology, and the ability to craft accurate understandings of the population as a whole, Unlearning the Language of Conquest yields a liberating new lexis for realistic dialogues.

How can First Nations schools in Canada offer a curriculum that is at once authentically and deeply Aboriginal while comparable in content, quality, and standards to provincial and territorial education? First Nations Education Policy in Canada is a critical analysis of policy developments affecting First Nations education since 1986 and a series of recommendations for future policy changes. Jerry Paquette and Gerald Fallon challenge the fundamental assumptions about Aboriginal education that have led to a Balkanized and ineffective educational system able to serve few of the needs of students. To move forward, the authors have developed a conceptual framework with which to re-envision the social, political, and educational goals of a self-governing First Nations education system. Offering a sorely needed fresh perspective on an issue vital to the community, First Nations Education Policy in Canada is grounds for critical reflection not only on education but on the future of Aboriginal self-determination.

English summary: The governance of natural resources used by many individuals in common is an issue of increasing concern to policy analysts. Both state control and privatization of resources have been advocated, but neither the state nor the market has been uniformly successful in solving common-pool resource problems. After critiquing the foundations of policy analysis as applied to natural resources, Elinor Ostrom here provides a unique body of empirical data to explore the conditions under which common-pool resource problems have been satisfactorily solved. Elinor Ostrom first describes three models most frequently used as the foundation for recommending state or market solutions. She then outlines theoretical and empirical alternatives to these models in order to illustrate the diversity of possible solutions. German description: In ihrem [...] Buch packt Elinor Ostrom eines der zahesten und umstrittensten Probleme der empirischen politischen Okonomie an: Lasst sich, und wenn ja wie, die Erschliessung von Allmenderessourcen so organisieren, dass sie weder ubernutzt werden noch allzu hohe Verwaltungskosten entstehen? Nach einer haufig unter Okonomen vertretenen Ansicht sind Ressourcen, die von vielen Individuen gemeinsam bewirtschaftet werden [...] erst ausbeutbar, wenn das Problem der Ubernutzung entweder durch Privatisierung oder durch eine externe Sanktionsinstanz gelost ist. Ostrom dagegen weist uberzeugend nach, dass andere Losungen existieren und sich stabile selbstverwaltete Institutionen schaffen lassen, sobald gewisse Probleme der Institutionenbereitstellung, glaubwurdigen Selbstverpflichtung und Regeluberwachung gelost sind. Ihre detaillierte Studie eines einzigartig breiten Spektrums von Fallbeispielen befasst sich unter anderem mit Hochgebirgsweiden in Japan und der Schweiz, Wasserprojekten auf den Philippinen und in Kalifornien [...] Gestutzt auf eine vergleichende Analyse der Ursachen erfolgreicher und gescheiterter Selbstverwaltung, beschreibt Ostrom etliche grundlegende Merkmale erfolgreicher Projekte der Bewirtschaftung von Allmenderessourcen und schliesst mit einer Aufforderung an andere Sozialwissenschaftler, ihr auf dem eingeschlagenen theoretischen Weg zu folgen.
