Summary
"Covers the full scope of Indigenous legal issues with considerable depth, including extracts of key primary materials. Includes the abolition of ATSIC and recent moves towards establishing a successor body (or bodies) to represent Indigenous Australians, the continuing need to 'close the gap' between the socio-economic conditions of Indigenous and other Australians, the federal government's 'Northern Territory Emergency Response' intervention in 2007, the change of national government followed by the Commonwealth Parliament's 2008 apology to the 'Stolen Generations' and the Palm Island Case. Also includes a new chapter on International Law developments, and a survey of a number of outstanding issues on the agenda of social justice and reconciliation" -- back cover
