Quest for Equity is a "first" in the social science literature in its attention to the place Norwegian ethos and symbols of state have in the dynamics of Saami peoplehood. Over and above the category distinction "Norwegian" contra "Saami," it attends to the subtle shades of difference among Saami themselves, according to their own and others' understandings of their minority placement within the Norwegian nation-state.
For all--social science or lay reader alike--who grapple with ethnic minority issues, Quest for Equity is an essential text.
