What Can Tribes Do? Strategies and Institutions in American Indian Economic Development

Edited by Stephen Cornell and Joseph P. Kalt, 1992.
In the late 1980s, the Harvard Project on American Indian Economic Development carried out an extended study of the conditions under which self-determined economic development can be successful on Indian reservations. The core research method was a comparative analysis of development efforts on several reservations. The focus of the collection is on the institutional and developmental strategies most likely to lead to success on tribal terms.
