5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Nettie of Australia on August 30, 2010
Format: Paperback
Suttons book is a very powerful book about the harsh realities of life for many Indigenous Australians in the context of significant policy changes over the last few years. It will resonate to any one who has lived and worked in remote Australia. He is an anthropologist but is also writing about people he knows and what has happened to them. There are harsh truths. The failure of policy and programs to improve the life circumstances of many Indigenous Australians remains our greatest shame.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I would highly recommend this refreshing and very honest book, written by someone who has spent many decades personally observing and considering the problems described. It has caused some controversy for daring to go against the established view and pointing out that the return to the land has been far from the panacea it was once thought to be. The book came quickly and was in excellent condition.

As Peter Sutton says ... is not necessarily a good uniter of people
Very challenging and provocative ideas to be absorbed and digested by myself as a southern urban soft left Indigenous supporter.
