    With slight editing, this paper was posted on my website on November 11, 1999, so I won't re-post it here.

Instructor's main comments (many more can be seen in the pdf):

    Murray, your paper is well researched, clearly written, and directly addresses the assignment topic focus. Excellent work, particularly your integration of relevant Yukon information! The a areas I would like to have seen you briefly elaborate on are: (1) your discussion of the social construction of crime, and; (2) specific conflicts btwn Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal systems of dispute resolution.
    In brief, excellent identification of your theoretical perspective, the social construction of crime, Aboriginal cultural imperatives, and the major differences btwn Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal approaches to dispute resolution.
