Cornell, Stephen, Joseph P. Kalt, ed. 1992. What Can Tribes Do? Strategies and Institutions in American Indian Economic Development. Los Angeles: American Indian Studies Center, UCLA.
In the late 1980s, the Harvard Project on American Indian Economic Development carried out an extended study of the conditions under which self-determined economic development can be successful on Indian reservations. The core research method was a comparative analysis of development efforts on several reservations. The focus of the collection is on the institutional and developmental strategies most likely to lead to success on tribal terms.
