"All Canadians have watched with fascination and dismay the unfolding of events following the Marshall decision by the Supreme Court. Ken Coates' book offers an historical perspective which enables us to comprehend the dispute. At the same time, he has made it clear why First Nations' claims to resources cannot be ignored by Maritimers or other Canadians. They are claims based on constitutional entitlement; they are also the means by which First Nations will achieve a contemporary place in Canadian society" - Thomas R. Berger, former Supreme Court justice and commissioner of the MacKenzie Valley Pipeline Inquiry. Book about Marshall Decision. Locale: Canada.
