"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.
