Melinda Hinkson Editor.

An urgently needed dialogue, this account argues that anthropology can still provide hope. Get A Copy. Paperback , pages. More Details Other Editions 3. Friend Reviews. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.

Apr 29, Colin rated it liked it. If, like me, you are not Australian, this book's essays provide a good feel for how this particular area of politics has played in the very recent past.
The collection is particularly good at showing the extent to which ideas like neo-liberalism, and structural violence are being used to analyze the Australian experience. If, like me, you are a Canadian, or live in the United States, and care about indigenous issues here, this book will also leave you with a sinking feeling of familiarity.

Even anthropologists can't agree on whether Aboriginal communities are in dire straits or whether they need help from the state to close the gap with Settled Australians or whether they'd even want to. This book explores the issues from a number of perspectives. I was glad to find that at least everyone agreed that the interventions should have been done in consultation with the communities themselves.
