As American Indian Nations continue to grow and thrive in the twenty first century many have engaged in significant expansion of their business practices. Unfortunately, there are few resources to assist a practitioner in forming successful tribal contracts despite the fact that many tribal governments enter into hundreds of contracts a year. This book strives to provide such a resource. The book provides a general background that every practitioner should be aware of when either engaging in business transactions with tribes or providing representation to tribes when they contract with outside entities. It covers various areas of federal Indian law that have a significant impact on these relationships, and chapters written to give a practitioner an understanding of basic principles of tribal economies, contract drafting, and federal contract law. Also included are several sample contracts designed for tribes, including a professional services contract, a general consulting contract, and a master agreement.

Die Wissenschaften vom Künstlichen von Herbert A. Simon gilt seit dem Erscheinen der ersten Ausgabe im Jahr 1969 als "Klassiker" der Literatur zum Thema Künstliche Intelligenz. Simon hat zusammen mit den Computerwissenschaftlern Allen Newell, Marvin Minsky und John McCarthy Mitte der fünfziger Jahre das so bezeichnete - von Alan Turing antizipierte - Forschungsgebiet der Computerwissenschaft und der Psychologie ins Leben gerufen. Seine herausragende, allgemeinverständliche Darstellung von Grundüberlegungen und philosophischen Aspekten der Künstlichen Intelligenz ist heute aktueller denn je, nicht nur wegen der ständig zunehmenden Bedeutung der Forschung und Entwicklung auf diesem Gebiet, sondern auch aufgrund des verbreiteten Mangels an Grundkenntnissen für eine kritische Auseinandersetzung mit der Künstlichen Intelligenz.
