'Excellent... The book is written in a way that is accessible to a range of allies outside academic circles and speaks to real case studies.'
Linda Tuhiwai Smith, author of Decolonizing Methodologies: Research and Indigenous Peoples
'A nuanced and insightful examination of the complexity and challenges of being an ally to Indigenous struggles. It serves as an excellent and much-needed guide for all of us working for, with, or on behalf of marginalized and disenfranchised communities.'
Paul Kivel, educator, activist and author of Uprooting Racism
'A thoughtful and thought-provoking book. Both profound and practical, Land poses vital questions to the reader interested in solidarity and social change.'

'In this excellent book, Land covers an exceptional breadth of issues with considerable aplomb. It is a provocative and lively read, rich with data that brings indigenous voices to the fore.'
Damien Short, School of Advanced Study
`[T]his book should be compulsory reading for non-Indigenous scholars, including postgraduate students, whose research interests revolve around Indigenous communities.'
`An ambitious and important book that comes at a pivotal time ... I recommend reading it, reflecting, and reading it again.'
Canadian Journal of Education
`Land provides meaningful and insightful accounts of community-based education initiatives necessary for solidarity movements.'
McGill Journal of Education
`This timely and important book by Clare Land offers a critical resource to assist a new generation of activists ... provides urgently needed and critically important reflections on the practices of solidarity activism that push beyond liberal models of solidarity politics.'
E3W Review of Books
`Land's book is an important contribution to an emergent "non-Indigenous progressive research agenda" ... provides an opportunity to reflect on the nature of solidarity work more generally, posing broader questions of involvement and self-interest in solidarity politics and intersectional work for activists.'
