Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noteworthy Author Robert Williams traces western legal thought from medieval times to the 18 century and its connection to North American Indian. I have recommended this book to many of my friends who are doing PHD's and MA's and they have found it very useful. The American Indian in Western Legal Thought is an essential filter to all disciplines on native issues whether they be legal, political, environmental, managemental etc. As an Ojibway person myself I found it useful for my own person relation to western society. In that the denial of land rights of North American Indians has its roots in Medieval legal thought which also had an effect of contemporarty social, economic and political etc events in Aboriginal communites. A must read for whatever purpose!
