"In 1959, the Supreme Court ushered in a new era of Indian law, which recognizes Indian tribes as permanent governments within the federal constitutional system and, on the whole, honors old promises to the Indians. Drawing together historical sources such as the records of treaty negotiations with the Indians, classic political theory on the nature of sovereignty, and anthropological studies of societal change, Wilkinson evaluates the Court's work in Indian law over the past twenty five years and considers the effects of time on law."--Back cov

Crossing the next meridian : land, water, and the future of the West by Charles F Wilkinson( Book )

8 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 764 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like no other region of the United States, the West is dominated by its landscape. The natural setting is close to the hearts of the people, and natural resources drive society intellectually and emotionally as well as economically. It is a place ripe for conflict between those who wish to reap the natural wealth of the land and those who wish to preserve the region in a pure and untrammeled state. Governing this volatile situation are what Charles F. Wilkinson calls the "lords of yesterday"--Laws, policies, and ideas that arose out of nineteenth-century westward expansion and still wield extraordinary influence. While the societal and historical contexts have changed, the regulations governing mining, ranching, forestry, and water use for the most part have remained intact. These critical issues are difficult to comprehend, and public awareness of them is astonishingly, and dangerously, low. In Crossing the Next Meridian, Wilkinson explains to a general audience some of the core problems that face the American West, both now and in the years to come. An expert on federal public lands, Native American issues, and the West's arcane water laws, Wilkinson looks at the outmoded ideas that pervade land use and resource allocation. He argues that significant reform of Western law is needed to combat environmental decline and heal splintered communities. Interweaving legal history with examples of present-day consequences, both intended and unintended, Wilkinson traces the origins and development of Western laws and regulations. He relates stories of Westerners who face these issues on a day-to-day basis and discusses what can and should be done to bring government policies in line with the reality of twentieth-century American life. His examination seeks a middle ground between those who champion unrestricted growth and those who advocate complete preservation. In an engaging and thought-provoking analysis, Wilkinson juxtaposes historical and contemporary Western settings to explain some of the West's most fundamental and complex problems and to outline potential solutions

Fire on the plateau : conflict and endurance in the American Southwest by Charles F Wilkinson( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: "This book recounts my journey through the Colorado Plateau, a journey through place and time and self ... During my explorations of more than three decades, I found a land that sears into my heart and soul, a place that has taught me and changed me. I also discovered a land of conflict and endurance, a land that has given birth to one of the great chapters in American history."--The Introduction The Colorado Plateau, stretching across four states and covering nearly 80 million acres, is one of the most unique and spectacular landscapes in the world. Remote, rugged, and dry -- at once forlorn and glorious -- it is a separate place, a place with its own distinctive landscape, history, and future. In Fire on the Plateau, legal scholar and writer Charles Wilkinson relates the powerful story of how, over the past thirty years, he has been drawn ever more deeply into the redrock country and Indian societies of the Colorado Plateau. His work in the early 1970s as staff attorney for the newly formed Native American Rights Fund brought him into close contact with Navajo and Hopi people. His growing friendships with American Indians and increasing understanding of their cultures, along with his longstanding scholarship and experiences on federal public lands, led him to delve into the complicated history of the region. Wilkinson examines that history -- the sometimes violent conflicts between indigenous populations and more recent settlers, the political machinations by industry and the legal establishment, the contentious disputes over resources and land use -- and provides a compelling look at the epic events that have shaped the region. From centuries of habitation by native peoples to Mormon settlement, from the "Big Build-Up" of the post-World War II era to the increased environmental awareness of recent years, he explores the conquests of tribes and lands that have taken place, and the ways in which both have endured. Throughout, Wilkinson uses his own personal experiences as a lawyer working with Indian people and his heartfelt insights about a land that he grew to love to tie together the threads of the story. Fire on the Plateau is a vital and dynamic work that is sure to strike a chord with anyone interested in the past or future of the American Southwest
