Chapter
In 1869, the year John Wesley Powell first ran the Colorado River, justice was not an option for American Indians. It is difficult to imagine today the level of racism and hatred for Native peoples during that era. We should avoid applying today’s moral standards to people of another era, but we must never shirk from accurate description. With the...
Article
Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) is one of the most utilized models in water policy and administration. One of the crucial components in IWRM is collaboration, where multiple stakeholders negotiate solutions. This article explores the role of collaboration in one of the most contentious water conflicts in the nation—the Klamath River. T...
Article

International relations between India and Pakistan over the Indus Waters Treaty, as well as interprovincial relations within Pakistan over the 1991 Water Accord, speak to this sentiment.

As universities and colleges seek to integrate sustainability into a broad range of programs, degrees, and certificates, they must overcome traditional academic silos, disciplinary boundaries, and funding constraints. This requires an unprecedented level of curricular innovation, creative funding streams, and directed facilitation of cross-campus c...

The right to vote is the foundation of democratic government; all other policies are derived from it. The history of voting rights in America has been characterized by a gradual expansion of the franchise. American Indians are an important part of that story but have faced a prolonged battle to gain the franchise. One of the most important tools wi...

Passed in 1965 during the height of the Civil Rights movement, the Voting Rights Act (VRA) changed the face of the American electorate, dramatically increasing minority voting, especially in the South. While portions of the Act are permanent, certain provisions were set to expire in 2007. Reauthorization of these provisions passed by a wide margin...

Chapter
Much has been written about the waste and inefficiency of traditional western water projects (Andrews and Sansone 1983; Reisner 1986; Gottlieb 1988; Bates et al. 1993; McCool 1994). Some authors have focused primarily on the negative environmental impacts of supply-centered water development (Fradkin 1981; Palmer 1986; McCully 1996; Grossman 2002)....
Article
Soon after the Constitution was ratified, the national government began a water development program based on the premise that rivers best serve society if they are controlled, diverted, and dammed. In 1802, the year the Army Corps of Engineers was established, such an approach was an accurate reflection of the needs and realities of the new nation....
Article
Beginning in the late 1970s, the federal government adopted a policy of negotiating, rather than litigating, conflicts over Indian water claims. In the ensuing years numerous settlements have been authorized by Congress. According to the literature on dispute resolution, successful negotiations are usually characterized by a specific set of conditi...
Article

However, a number of problems persist. This essay explains why the subsystem concept has been so popular and enduring, and then discusses three problems...
Article
Public administration is shaped by its context. This is true not only for the discipline as a whole but for the individuals who study, teach, and practice public administration. Radin and Cooper offer an insightful view of administration shaped by their activist involvement with the great social and political upheavals of the sixties. Their “public...

Article
Western Indian tribes have enormous quantities of "paper water' - that is, court-decreed rights to water but no money to develop and use it. Under a long series of court decisions dating back to 1908, Indian tribes have an implied right to water. This right often conflicts, however, with the economic interest of their Anglo neighbors. Some tribal p...
Article
For many years political scientists have utilized the subgovernment model of policy-making to explain certain types of policy output. Recently a number of scholars have argued that the traditional conceptualization of subgovernments was simplistic and incomplete. They view subgovernments as a complex and integral part of the larger policy-making en...
Article
Much has been written about legal questions surrounding Indian water rights; this book now places them in the political framework that also includes water development. McCool analyzes the two conflicting doctrines relating to water use one based on federal case law governing the rights of Indians on reservations, the other sanctioned by legislation...
