Description

Conquest by Law: How the Discovery of America Dispossessed Indigenous Peoples of Their Lands by Lindsay Robertson is an examination of Chief Justice John Marshall's 1823 ruling in Johnson v. M'Intosh, a United States Supreme Court case. Using recently recovered documents, the author evaluates the use of the so-called discovery doctrine that was used to justify American take-over of Indigenous lands. The author is Presidential Professor of Law, History and Native American Studies at the University of Oklahoma College of Law.
