The third edition of Aboriginal Law: Commentary, Cases and Materials contains more extensive and detailed commentary than earlier editions, and highlights the most important aspects of Canadian law affecting Aboriginal peoples. The author provides detailed information on and analysis of current law, referring to relevant court decisions, statutes, and land claims agreements. Key excerpts from major cases and materials are included. All major Supreme Court of Canada decisions on Aboriginal rights in the last four decades are referred to and most are excerpted. The addition of a detailed index makes this book easy to use, and the selected bibliography after each chapter assists readers with more in-depth research. The Table of Cases contains page numbers indicating where cases are referenced and/or excerpted which will be of particular value to the legal practitioner. This book is national in scope, but it also canvasses the many regional situations that exist in Canada. The claims of First Nations peoples in BC, the unique situation of Maritime First Nations, land claim agreements in northern Canada, and the special place of the numbered treaties covering the Prairie provinces are considered and reviewed. While this is a law book, it is written and designed for use by anyone interested in Aboriginal legal issues.
