This review examines critically, but with great admiration, Charles Wilkinson's book on the Supreme Court's performance in American Indian law cases. Wilkinson concluded that the Court had acted, at least until 1987, in a much more tribal-friendly way than many commentators had suggested, and that the Court had protected a policy of measured separatism in American Indian law and policy.
