Australia's failure to improve the quality of life among Aboriginal people is addressed in this book, which illustrates how despite billions of dollars of government spending, indigenous Australians have a life expectancy almost 20 years below that of other Australians and remain far more likely to suffer unemployment, poverty, domestic violence, imprisonment, and low levels of education. Arguing that Australia???s political leaders have paralyzed the debate on civil rights and continue to look to the past for solutions, this book challenges the nation to act with its frank discussion of one of the most pressing moral issues confronting Australia.

From first Australians to un-Australians -- Self-determination: a staggering betrayal -- Code of silence -- The stolen generations: holocaust or fiction? -- The self-righteous generation -- The sentence is the crime -- Return of the noble savage
