Indigeneity and Political Theory engages some of the profound challenges to

traditions of modern political theory that have been posed over the past two

decades. Karena Shaw is especially concerned with practices of sovereignty

as they are embedded in and shape Indigenous politics, and responses to

Indigenous politics.

Drawing on theories of post-coloniality, feminism, globalization, and

international politics, and using examples of contemporary political practice

including court cases and specific controversies, Shaw seeks to illustrate and

argue for a way of doing political theory that is more responsive to the

challenges posed by a range of contemporary issues.

An engaging and highly original analysis of Indigenenity and sovereignty,

this book enables the reader to develop a more robust consideration of

relationships between theory and practice, and thus the politics of theorizing.
