Beyond White Guilt, Paperback (June 2011)» View all books by Sarah Maddison
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.
