a nice overview of the concept of "indian work" and how it was viewed by anglo-american society over time (18th-20th centuries). especially good in that it includes male and female spheres of work and allows for the idea of shifting perspectives on work, tradition, and modernization by native peoples over time. also, quite accessible for a scholarly work, no anthropological mumbo-jumbo gumming up the works.
