Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Australian anthropologist Stanner (1905-81; Australian National Univ.) was ahead of his time in his vision for the future of Australia's native peoples. At a time when Australian popular opinion considered Aborigines a dying people and government policy encouraged their assimilation into white society, Stanner advocated civil and land rights for Aborigines and recognition of their unique culture as part of Australia's heritage. In his best-known work, White Man Got No Dreaming (1979. o.p.), Stanner presented Aboriginal perspectives on Australian history and race relations. This collection of previously unpublished papers, edited by Martin, a Dominican priest who himself worked closely with the Aborigines of Australia's Northern Territories, includes essays on religion, land tenure, and privacy in Aboriginal society. The largest section of the book contains explanations of Aboriginal ideas on land ownership relating to landmark court cases on Aboriginal land rights. A useful glossary is included, but there are no maps to further the reader's understanding. Although Martin's introduction and explanatory essays are excellent, the technical nature of Stanner's writing and the subject itself limit the appeal of this work to those familiar with Australian Aboriginal issues and Stanner's previous works. For collections in anthropology and Australian studies. Lucille M. Boone, San Jose P.L., CA
