Description - Third World in the First by Elspeth Young

The history of European colonization has been based upon the marginalization of "first peoples". This legacy is most apparent in the outback of Australia and Canada, the remote areas which have harboured the Aboriginal, Indian and Inuit peoples. Modernization, the "boom and bust" model of state and private development, and the partial and biased aid provided by the state have eroded many communities and the holistic beliefs which underpin them. This book explores the past, present and future of these peoples, their treatment by the "West" and the strategies of development left open to them.
