Indigenous Legal Relations in Australia is a comprehensive and clearly argued text designed to suit the needs of Law and Indigenous Studies students. An integrated series of chapters, utilising case studies and questions to develop arguments on specific issues, this text studies the issues surrounding Indigenous people's contact with Anglo-Australian law, dealing primarily with the problems the imposed law has had in its relationship with Indigenous people in Australia.

Indigenous Peoples and Human Rights by Larissa Behrendt Indigenous Peoples and Human Rights, Paperback (June 2016)

This book provides a comprehensive examination of the treatment of Indigenous peoples in international law and from a comparative law perspective. While scholarly in approach, it can also be used as a textbook for university students, and therefore covers a broad range of topics relevant to the study of Indigenous People and International Law.

Discovering Indigenous Lands by Larissa Behrendt Discovering Indigenous Lands, Paperback (January 2012)

North America, New Zealand, and Australia were colonized by England under an international legal principle that is known today as the doctrine of discovery. This book analyses how England applied this doctrine to gain control over the lands, property, government, and human rights of Indigenous peoples, and how this control continues to this day.
