The Tribes and the States: Geographies of Intergovernmental Interaction

Sovereignty establishes a government-to-government relationship between American-Indian tribes and the United States. Exploring tribal-state interactions over land and sovereignty, this book takes a geographical look at issues such as environmental regulation, expansion of gaming, criminal jurisdiction, taxation, fishing and transportation. The contributors find that tribes and state have two choices: litigate or co-operate. While aiming to identify the encroachment of state jurisdiction in Indian country, this book also seeks to develop a resource for tribes, states and all actors in their relationships and to show that no tribal-state interaction has to be a zero-sum game.
