This comprehensive bibliography of Deloria’s published writings is organized in four sections: books; articles, essays and interviews; forewords, introductions and afterwords; and other writings. Like the essays collected in this volume, the citations within each section have been arranged chronologically in order to highlight the emergence and development of key themes in Deloria’s work over the past three decades. Items not listed here include his contributions to the NCAI Sentinel (early 1965 to late 1967), his scholarly book reviews (which Deloria himself does not keep track of), audiotape and videotape recordings of his public presentations that are available at certain libraries, and reprinted versions of his articles and book chapters. While not exhaustive, this bibliography does represent the most comprehensive accounting of Deloria’s published writings available in print.
