Coming soon: Native Nations: The Survival of Fourth World Peoples, 2nd Edition

This Spring Professor Sharlotte Neely's edited volume, Native Nations: The Survival of Fourth World Peoples, 2nd Edition will be available!
Here is an example of what you can expect in the second edition:

"Indigenous minorities—Fourth World peoples—continue to exist in some of the wealthiest, most modern, democratic nations on earth.  Despite acculturating to some degree, these native groups have survived with their unique ethnic identities and many of their cultural traditions intact.    
  
In recent years the phrase "Fourth World" has been used in at least three, sometimes overlapping, ways.  Sometimes the term has been used to mean the poorest of the Third World countries where the First World refers to wealthier democratic nations often aligned with the West, the Second World refers to one-time or current communist nations previously aligned with the former Soviet Union, and the Third World refers to politically non-aligned, poorer, usually non-Western, nations.  In other cases "Fourth World" has been used to refer to the world's unrecognized, non-sovereign, "wannabe nations" like Tibet, Kurdistan, Palestine, Catalonia, Euskal Herria, the Kingdom of Hawaii, or so many others that would like to carve their territory out of one or more recognized nations.  (Most recently, South Sudan has actually made the transition from wannabe nation to sovereign nation.)  Finally, "Fourth World" can refer to the surviving, indigenous (native, aboriginal) minorities within the wealthier First World nations.  That is the meaning of "Fourth World" in this book. 

Here nine anthropologists, one linguist, one historian, one geographer, and one political scientist focus on nine groups of Fourth World peoples within twelve First World nations and, for comparison, one indigenous group in a Second World nation and one in four Third World nations.  All are compared and contrasted in regard to their strategies for survival.
