Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0521792835, Hardcover)This book explores the three-way struggle between the British colonists who settled North America, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa; the British government and its U.S. and Canadian federal government successors; and the indigenous peoples of the settled regions. In the colonies, British law and popular norms clashed over a range of issues, including ready access to land, the property rights of aboriginal people, the taking of property for public purposes, and master-servant relationships. This book will greatly appeal to law professors, historians, and anyone interested in the rights of native peoples.
