**CHOICE Outstanding Academic Book** "[Philp] presents a well-balanced account of the legal, political, and economic relationships between Native Americans and the U.S. government during the period shortly before the Indian Reorganization Act (1935) to . . . Termination, the program to dissolve tribal relationships with the federal government. . . . Philp brilliantly ties together the shifting stances of governmental and tribal officials."-Choice. "Termination Revisited is, without question, an important book. It will be required reading for any serious student of modern Indian history."-Nevada Historical Society Quarterly. "The best account we have to date of policy formation during the Truman administration. But there is more. Philp's narrative introduces actors who have not figured prominently in previous accounts of the period. . . . He also illuminates reservation life and politics in the 1940s and 1950s. Philp's book charts the course for many new studies come."-Western Historical Quarterly. "Philp's book is gracefully written, founded on nearly thirty years of research, and finely balanced in its assessments. This history makes sense out of much of the nonsense touching lives of several hundreds of thousands of American Indians in the twentieth century."-Oregon Historical Quarterly. Kenneth R. Philp is a professor of history at the University of Texas, Arlington. He is the author of John Collier's Crusade for Indian Reform, 1920?1954.
