Hunger, Horses, and Government Men: Criminal Law on the Aboriginal Plains, 1870-1905, paper ed

$38.45

In this illuminating book, Hunger, Horses, and Government Men: Criminal Law on the Aboriginal Plains, 1870-1905, Shelley Gavigan argues that the notion of criminalization captures neither the complexities of First Nations and Métis participation in the courts nor the significance of the Indian Act as a form of law. Gavigan uses records of ordinary cases from the lower courts and insights from critical criminology and traditional legal history to interrogate state formation and criminal law in the Saskatchewan region of the North-West Territories between 1870 and 1905.
