Research Canons

Books and articles that are essential to a new academic in various areas of legal inquiry as suggested by contributors to PrawfsBlawg.


  1. Felix Cohen, Handbook of Federal Indian Law (1941) (suggested by Rick Garnett).  
  2. Charles F. Wilkinson, Blood Struggle: The Rise of Modern Indian Nations (2006) (though it is a new book it is a great way for a junior person (like myself) to figure out the role different people played in strengthening Indian tribes this century; suggested by Ezra Rosser). 



  1. Robert N. Clinton, Criminal Jurisdiction Over Indian Lands: A Journey Through a Jurisdictional Maze, 18 Ariz. L. Rev. 503 (1976) (suggested by Rick Garnett).
