Indigenous People's Rights (Essential Issues) – School Library Journal
Marsico provides a broad overview of indigenous cultures from around the globe before delving into the common problems faced by many of them and outlining possible solutions, with a particular focus on the pros and cons of fair-trade initiatives. This book will give beginners a strong foundation in the subject, but even students who may be familiar with a few of the cultures discussed will gain a more comprehensive global perspective and acquire insight into the common predicaments faced by peoples who may seem quite different at first glance.
