Felix S. Cohen's Handbook of federal Indian law by Felix S Cohen( Book )

22 editions published between 1942 and 1986 in English and held by 726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The following is taken from the Publisher's Note: "Long out of print since it was originally published in 1942 by the U.S. Government Printing Office, this classic work on Federal Indian law, and the whole legal history of Indian-white relations, is here republished in a facsimile edition. It is, as Felix Frankfurter observed, the only book that has ever made sense and order from 'the vast hodgepodge of treaties, statutes, judicial and administrative rulings, and unrecorded practice in which the intricacies and perplexities, confusions and injustices of the law governing Indians lay concealed.' ... This handbook should not be confused with the vulgate version issued by the Government Printing Office in 1958, and since then reprinted by 2 other publishers. That expurgated edition was rewritten, according to its introduction, 'for the purpose of foreclosing, if possible, further uncritical use of the earlier [1942] edition by judges, lawyers, and laymen.'"

On the drafting of tribal constitutions by Felix S Cohen( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the Drafting of Tribal Constitutions shows that concepts of Indigenous autonomy and self-governance have been vital to Native nations throughout history. As today's tribal governments undertake reform, Cohen's memorandum again offers a wealth of insight on how best to amend previous constitutions. It also helps scholars better understand the historic policy shift brought about by the Indian Reorganization Act."--Pub. desc

American thought; a critical sketch by Morris Raphael Cohen( Book )

26 editions published between 1954 and 2017 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What constitutes American thought is obviously too elusive to be encompassed by any one writer or group of writers. The best that any attempt at intellectual history can achieve is to indicate some of its traces in written records. This volume represents the eff orts of one of America's leading philosophers to do just that. He is uniquely qualified to do so, as his contemporary Sidney Hook well understood.As Cohen noted, most of what people say and write is dominated by linguistic forms or habits. Thus the dominance of the traditions and habits that make up the English language has been the strongest single infl uence in fashioning American thought as very largely a province of British thought - despite the Declaration of Independence and two wars. Cohen describes how American thought developed from its British roots. It deals with reflective thought, i.e. with thought that is conscious of its problems, of its methods and of the widest general bearings of the results obtained so far. The diverse subjects discussed range from religious thinking to the scientific, and from the legal tradition to literary criticism.Among the important figures Cohen assesses are Dewey, Santayana, Holmes, Brandeis, Whitehead, James, and Royce as well as those of men less well-known but sometimes equally influential. In its scope and insight, this book takes its own unique and important place in American thought."--Provided by publisher
