Assistant Professor of History Dr. James Allison published Sovereignty for Survival: American Energy Development and Indian Self-Determination, which details how American Indians leveraged their possession of valuable energy resources during the 1970s to expand tribal sovereignty and participate in global energy development.

“This story of tribal resistance and shifting tribal identities demonstrates the interplay between the environment, law and culture, and should make major contributions to the histories of American Indians, the American West, and energy and the environment,” Allison says.
