Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Relations, second edition, introduces readers to the major issues faced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people under the Anglo-Australian legal system, with a focus on the impact of historical and contemporary law and policy.

It engages readers in key debates, such as reparations for the Stolen Generation and changes to the Constitution, and explores how the law can play a role in providing a framework for recognising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' rights.
