Description - Aboriginal Australia by Colin Bourke

Aboriginal Australia presents selected themes that relate to indigenous Australians against a background of traditional, colonial and contemporary experiences. Particular facets of the lives of Aboriginal Australians are revealed through an examination of their struggle to maintain a strong identity and heritage while actively participating in Australian society. Reflected throughout the work is how this process enriches the Australian community as a whole. This new, fully revised and corrected edition gives an up-to-date account of recent events of significance for the indigenous people of Australia. It takes account of Mabo, the momentous Native Title decision of the High Court to overturn the concept of terra nullius and recognise pre-colonial occupation of Australia, including property rights.
