Summary
Reviews the ideas presented in 'Black Politics: Inside the Complexity of Aboriginal Political Culture' by Sarah Maddison; discusses the issues raised by those interviewed by Maddison for her book, claiming that the key issue preoccoupying her interviewees is "personal power"; says that the critical and immediate issues raised in 'The Politics of Suffering' by Peter Sutton are ignored by Maddison and her interviewees; Lane suggests that the Aboriginal Movement has made too many false starts and false promises, suggests that there are three emerging but increasingly irrelevant Indigenous political structures; discusses the achievements of Aboriginal people in education and wonders why writers and policy makers don't have higher expectations for the efforsts of Indigenous people themselves; concludes that while Maddision's book gives a sense of the complexity of Aboriginal political cutlure, neither it, nor Peter Sutton's 'Politics of Suffering' confront all the problems or all the possibilities of Indigenous Australians in contemporary Australia
