Review quote

"'This is a ground-breaking volume. It brings together for the first time a range of Australia's leading Indigenous intellectuals in a book that sets up a dialogue dealing with issues of identity, history and representation, issues at the heart of the image of the nation. In Australia's history of national growth, its Indigenous peoples have always played a role at the defining moments. However whitefella narratives have tried to erase that role. This book works to restore that Indigenous agency.' Stephen Muecke, University of Technology, Sydney"show more
