      In his book "Black Hills, White Justice," Edward Lazarus tells us in grotesque detail a story of betrayal and the longest legal struggle (and stalling act) in American history. Lazarus, now a Federal prosecutor in Los Angeles and the author of a previous book, ''Black Hills/White Justice,'' a history of the Sioux Nation's struggle against the United States Government, found his year inside the Supreme Court both exciting and disquieting. He returns to his experience in ''Closed Chambers,'' a valuable but often badly.

        The money has never been touched. It sits in trust in an interest-bearing account that by now has grown to more than $1 billion.“This was a sad ending from his perspective,” Edward Lazarus, who wrote about the case in the book “Black Hills/White Justice” (), said of his father. He is the author of two highly acclaimed books: Black Hills/White Justice: The Sioux Nation Versus the United States, to the Present and Closed Chambers: The Rise, Fall, and Future of the Modern Supreme Court. Lazarus' writing has also appeared in The Atlantic Monthly, U.S. News & World Report, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times.

      For the Sioux the Black Hills, Paha Sapa, are the center of the world, the place of the gods, where the warriors would go to wait for visions and to speak to the Great , a treaty was signed which granted Paha Sapa to the Indians forever.. However, in miners began to invade the Black Hills in a search for gold. In the Army ordered a reconaissance mission. I hope it finds many readers' - Evan S. Connell, author of "Son of the Morning Star"."Black Hills/White Justice" tells of the longest active legal battle in United States history: the century-long effort by the Sioux nations to receive compensation for the seizure of the Black Hills.
