THE AMERICAN INDIAN LAW DESKBOOK, originally published in 1993 and most recently revised in 2004, is a comprehensive treatise providing readers with the necessary historical, factual, and legal framework to understand the complexities that states, Indian tribes, and the federal government face when dealing with Indian lands. The annual supplement, an integral, distinguishing feature of the Deskbook, ensures that the Deskbook remains the most current and useful reference work in American Indian law. The 2005 Supplement reviews all decisions issued prior to July 2005, updates federal statutes and administrative regulations through July 2005, and updates law review articles through spring 2005.
