The book is a little dated being written in 2006, but the ideas are good but hardly new. ( )

Calvin Helin examines Canadian aboriginal policy through the eyes of dependency; policy choices over the years have resulted in creating an aboriginal population dependent on federal hand-outs and an aboriginal bureaucracy focussed on maintaining its own power rather than leading citizens into economic participation and prosperity.

While I could point out some errors in logic, the thesis is sound and the author points to several policy changes that could make a real difference to Canada's first peoples, and to Canadian society as a whole.

As an added bonus, the book contains several full-colour illustrations that are absolutely stunning. ( )
