'What Do We Want?': A Political History of Aboriginal Land Rights in New South Wales

Heidi Norman

'What Do We Want?': A Political History of Aboriginal Land Rights in New South Wales by Heidi NormanThe passage of land rights laws in New South Wales in 1983 saw political intrigue, deception, and disappointment as well as unprecedented engagement by Aboriginal citizens and their supporters. How could a sympathetic New South Wales State Government redress the effects of 200 years of colonization in the most densely populated state in the Commonwealth? The phrase "What do we want?" was the rallying call for land rights activists and Heidi Norman's insightful book begins in the late 1970s when Aboriginal people, armed with new skills, framed their land rights demands. The 1978 land rights inquiry...

Our Greatest Challenge: Aboriginal Children and Human Rights

Hannah McGlade

Our Greatest Challenge: Aboriginal Children and Human Rights by Hannah McGlade

Bravely addressing a complex and fraught issue, this book shows non-Aboriginal society's ignorance of the traumatic impacts of sexual assault on Aboriginal children. It argues that Aboriginal child sexual assault has been formed within the entrenched societal forces of racism, colonization, and patriarchy yet cast in the Australian public domain as an Aboriginal "problem." Providing detailed analysis of the legal systems response, this volume shows that, while child sexual assault is a criminal offence, the tainted Aboriginal experience of the law prevents the fundamental principle of equality....

Fighting Hard: The Victorian Aborigines Advancement League

Richard Broome

As both a welfare and activist body, the League can be seen as the mother of all Aboriginal Victorian community organizations, having spawned a diverse range of organizations.

One Law for All? Aboriginal People and Criminal Law in Early South Australia

Alan Pope

One Law for All? Aboriginal People and Criminal Law in Early South Australia by Alan PopeIn the planned colony of South Australia, Aboriginal people were to be British subjects, held accountable for their actions by English law and fully entitled to its protection. The reality, however, failed to meet the high expectations of London's reformers as British law struggled to protect the settlers' interests and failed to protect Aboriginal lives and birthrights. Revealing the efforts made by the judiciary to apply the legal equality policy as well as the frustrations of the Aborigines as they coped with the invasion of their lands, this account paints a clear picture of the South Australian...

Arresting Incarceration: Pathways Out of Indigenous Imprisonment

Don Weatherburn

Arresting Incarceration: Pathways Out of Indigenous Imprisonment by Don Weatherburn

Despite sweeping reforms by the Keating government following the 1991 Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody, the rate of Indigenous imprisonment has soared. What has gone wrong? In Arresting Incarceration, Don Weatherburn charts the events that led to Royal Commission. He also argues that past efforts to reduce the number of Aboriginal Australians in prison have failed to adequately address the underlying causes of Indigenous involvement in violent crime: namely, drug and alcohol abuse, child neglect and abuse, poor school performance, and unemployment.

Old Man's Story: The Last Thoughts of Kakadu Elder Bill Neidjie

Bill Neidjie & Mark Lang

Old Man's Story: The Last Thoughts of Kakadu Elder Bill Neidjie by Bill Neidjie & Mark LangKnown as "Old Man" in this book, Bill Neidjie wanted to record aspects of his life for a younger generation of Gagadju, to help them look after their country and remember its stories, as well as for balanda, or non-Aboriginal people. Bill is perhaps best known for being central to the opening up of his land, which led to the creation of the world heritage–listed Kakadu National Park and for recommending it be leased to the Commonwealth Government for it to be a resource for all Australians. Told in his own words, this beautifully nuanced, impressionistic account allows Neidjie to gently emphasize...
