An overview that briefly gives some history and examples about American Indian tribal governments, but as a whole I would look at this as only an overview. It would be good for those interested in getting some background before examining specific tribes in more depth. There is just simply too much to put in 300 pages. In fact, one tribe alone probably needs more than 300 pages to adequately discuss their tribal government's history.

But... a good overview.
