Exploring implications in law, writing, history, and public policy, this discussion shows that for indigenous people self-determination, welfare dependency, representation, cultural maintenance, history writing, reconciliation, land ownership, and justice are all inextricably linked to the original act of dispossession by white settlers and the ongoing loss of sovereignty.

    It should be known this book was assigned for a class.....That being said it took me quite a while to get through it. A collection of essays on Australian indigenous rights; it's truly hit or miss. A great deal are dense, and not the good cuddly dense. It's the quicksand dense. I had trouble wading through it and I set it aside to pick up other things quite often. Here's a summary of what you'll learn: the indigenous Australians struggle for rights is still going on and things don't look good. With all the bashing on various "academics" I just wish the various authors could have written in a style that would be easier to grasp for the general public. In the end it seems hypocritical to talk about the failures of a system while perpetuating one of the main failures of the academic system.... the failure to create product even remotely accessible to the common man (indigenous or not). I give three stars. This is because I learned a great deal from it, regardless of my experience while learning. It doesn't receive any higher of a review because of the reasons mentioned above.
