In this thoroughly revised and updated edition of the first book-length treatment of the subject, S. James Anaya incorporates references to all the latest treaties and recent developments in the international law of indigenous peoples. Anaya demonstrates that, while historical trends in international law largely facilitated colonization of indigenous peoples and their lands, modern international law's human rights program has been modestly responsive to indigenous peoples' aspirations to survive as distinct communities in control of their own destinies.
This book provides a theoretically grounded and practically oriented synthesis of the historical, contemporary and emerging international law related to indigenous peoples. It will be of great interest to scholars and lawyers in international law and human rights, as well as to those interested in the dynamics of indigenous and ethnic identity.

Industry Reviews

This new edition re-confirms his reputation in this field. This is an important textbook by a major legal scholar, written, as always, with considerable fluency and clarity as well as persuasiveness...The account he gives is of an international order that in only just having turned its attention to tribal people is still in a highly formative and exploratory state. In this area international law is at its outset. This second edition is to be welcomed for so informally taking us a stop or two further along that new pathway.
