In this fascinating study of the Dhan-Gadi Aboriginal people of New South Wales, Australia, the author combines the skills of a social historian with the detailed observation of a social anthropologist. In so doing he brings alive the contours of crude racism, as well as the more subtle expressions of paternalism, bureaucratic social control and educational and economic marginalization.

Industry Reviews

'In his well documented and careful research Morris goes far beyond a mere recitation of the factual events that have occurred in Australia, with regard to the Aborigines in the past 150 years, into a useful discourse relating to power and domination...This book is of interest to those who are concerned about the indigenous populations throughout the world - from the Native American issue in the United States to the South African Homelands.'
