Books By Author Sarah Maddison

Introduction to Australian Public Policy by Sarah Maddison Introduction to Australian Public Policy, Paperback (February 2013)

Examines the models, influences and players that shape public policy in Australia, addressing both theory and real-world challenges.

Beyond White Guilt by Sarah Maddison Beyond White Guilt, Paperback (June 2011)

Government policies of obliteration, assimilation, cultural maintenance and intervention have manifestly failed to bridge the gulf between black and white Australians, and to improve the lives of many Aboriginal Australians. This book argues that there is no point in looking again to governments for a solution. Rather, it is up to us, all of us.
