"The book is divided into four parts. Each part provides rich information related to thinking and planning in Native communities....A good read for students and faculty in planning, politicians, and other stakeholders."—Journal of American Indian Higher Education

"The author presents ‘comanagement’ as a way of meeting both tribal and nontribal concerns, something that in other contexts might be called inclusionary planning."—Planning

"Zaferatos discusses the complex conditions under which tribal governments operate but also provides readers with tangible ways in which tribes can better develop economically by delving into the obstacles and the opportunities that tribal governments face today. In doing so, he also advances the idea that strategic planning and development can foster even greater political gains than activism alone. This is a must read for both students and practitioners. Essential."—Choice

"[Zaferatos’s] insights about the practice of tribal planning present a new way of thinking about—and effectively overcoming—the many challenges that we tribal nations will inevitably continue to face in our pursuit of economic independence and self-determination."—Brian Cladoosby, president, National Congress of American Indians

"Zaferatos does a great service with this book. He understands that the successful planner in Indian Country works to empower tribes by expanding their capacities to stand as governing equals with their state, local, and federal counterparts. Perhaps even more importantly, his book sets out in detail the constraints and opportunities that confront the exercise of tribal governmental powers, and then goes about illustrating—with real world cases—exactly how constraints can be overcome and opportunities can be seized. The lessons Zaferatos draws will help both tribes and their neighbors to build better communities for their citizens."—Joseph P. Kalt, Professor Emeritus and codirector, Harvard Project on American Indian Economic Development, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University
