Riassunto: In this provocative and passionate book, Dan Russell argues that Aboriginal self-government is an attainable objective best achieved through a constitutional amendment, not through treaties, as has been the preoccupation of provincial and federal governments since 1982. He claims that reliance on treaties as an instrument of self-government is misguided and doomed to failure. He supports this claim by examining the notion of "tribal sovereignty" practised in the United States and describing how tribal communities there exercise self-governing authority.
Russell goes on to discuss the obstacles to self-government in Canada. What should be the relationship of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms to Aboriginal governance structures? How can Aboriginal women's rights be incorporated within future forms of Aboriginal governments? How can collective rights mesh with individual rights guaranteed by the Charter? And how can the recommendations in the final report of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples ever be reconciled to hopes for self-government?
A People's Dream offers an original perspective on one of the foremost issues facing Canadians today. Thought-provoking and at times controversial, it will be of interest to policy makers, lawyers, students of Native studies, and anyone interested in issues of Aboriginal self-government.
Sinossi: Written by a practising Aboriginal lawyer, this book argues that Aboriginal self-government in Canada would best be achieved via a constitutional amendment, not through treaties, as has been the preoccupation of provincial governments since 1982.

Descrizione libro University of British Columbia Press,, Vancouver, BC, 2000. Soft Cover/Excellent/Illustrat. Condizione libro: As New/Fine Condition. 1st Edition Softcover/Card. This copy is in very good condition--no marks and no apparent usage! A most interesting and provacative view of aboriginal self-government. By examining what has occurred in the United States by way of treates--"tribal sovereignty"-- Russell concludes that for Canada's First Nations peoples a constitutional entrenchment of sovereignty is necassary. It is an unapologeticly controversial book and for that reason it is well worth a serious read by those interested if the rights and future of native peoples not only in Canada but elsewhere.
