Skyscrapers Hide the Heavens: A History of Indian-White Relations in Canada
This new edition is the result of substantial revision to incorporate current scholarship and bring the text up to date. It includes new material on the North, and reflects changes brought about by the Oka crisis, the sovereignty issue, and the various court decisions of the 1990s. It includes new material on residential schools, treaty making, and land claims.

Miller's well-written account ... makes current native distrust of government motives and bargaining tactics in land-claims settlements all the more understandable and demonstrates that governments and the Canadian electorate have still to learn how to accommodate native aspirations for identity within the country's social and political framework.'
