Dippie, Brian W. text cut off in gutter. Books for People with Print Disabilities. Internet Archive Books.

The best study of American cultural attitudes regarding the Indian produced to date. Dippie writes with precision and economy about a very imprecise and amorphous subject, and does so in a clear and enjoyable style. A remarkably fine book. Enlightening and delightful. Should be on the reading list of every course on the history of the American Indian. Deserves a place on the shelves of anyone concerned with the status of Indians today.

Soon the "vanishing Indian" appeared in science, literature, art, popular culture, and, most importantly, federal policy. That belief not only persisted, writes historian Brian Dippie, but it also spread throughout American culture. The assumption that the Indians are a vanishing race has about it the quality of self-fulfilling prophecy," Dippie writes. Soon the "vanishing Indian" appeared in science, literature, art, popular culture, and, most importantly, federal policy.

Dippie traces the origins of the assumption that Indians are a vanishing race and documents its insidious effects on . policy toward Indians from the beginning of the nation's history through the Indian New Deal of the 1930s. He describes its role in early attempts at civilization and education, segregation of Indians west of the Mississippi, post-Civil War reform, the Dawes Act and allotment, the graduation of early twentieth-century policy, the reform movement of the 1920s, John Collier's Indian Reorganization Act, and into the 1970s.

Sad, emotionally charging! Although American Indians are not vanishing, they were at one time, but have since (twentieth Century) reclaimed their culture, identity and numbers. Although for some, the numbers don't matter because they're not real numbers. To be considered in the "numbers" count one has to fall under a certain criteria to be considered Indian. These criteria are determined by the government (Reread the books title). Think about it. There may be more People living today than you think. Oh, read the book.

Extraordinary book which left me so angry at the appalling way we treated Native Americans who were here centuries before we white folks came. I new the history was bad, but I was embarrassed my knowledge was so superficial. And grateful that I read this extraordinary book

This unique and well written book deserves many more 5-star reviews, so here is my contribution. I read it back in the 90's, but remember it as thorough, extremely well researched, and full of information. "White attitudes and U.S. Indian policy" is major part of our country's history; I hope this book will be widely read and studied.

This insightful, original, courageous and well-written book is fantastic. There is a lot of confusion on the part of undergraduate & graduate students regarding the cultural attitudes which resulted in shifting federal policy towards Native Americans. This book is a one-volume curative for that confusion, and anyone reading it will come away a better understanding of those shifts and why they occurred. It's ultimately an inspiring tale despite all the sad history, because it shows that, contrary to the self-reinforcing myth, American Indians were not fated to disappear into the mists of time, but remain very active members of our country today.
