Chadwick Allen, Trans-Indigenous: Methodologies for Global Native Literary Studies. Minneapolis: U of Minnesota P, 2012. 336 pp. $25.00. Jodi A. Byrd, The Transit of Empire: Indigenous Critiques of Colonialism. Minneapolis: U of Minnesota P, 2011. 320 pp. $35.00. Elizabeth Cook-Lynn, A Separate Country: Postcoloniality and American Indian Nations. Lubbock: Texas Tech UP, 2012. 288 pp. $25.00. These three books join a strong and promising trend in Native studies, challenging readers to develop greater awareness and precision regarding Indigenous nations and sovereignty, while also demonstrating how the resulting knowledge can be used to better understand literary, cultural, and historical events. Allen, Byrd, and CookLynn combat the erasure of colonialism (a negation too often aided by postcolonial theory) and assert that US power and wealth depend upon exploitation, thievery, and genocide. They also offer constructive strategies for how scholars and teachers can strengthen and advance the state of American Indian studies while correcting the misinformation and distortions at the heart of US national identity. These new works should compel the continued rethinking of Indigeneity in the United States and around the globe, and they will undoubtedly appeal to different readers in their respective ways.
