The Dying Days of Segregation in Australia: Case Study Yarrabah (Racism and Apartheid re Australian Aborigines) (Australian Aboriginal Issues Series Book 1)

by Barbara Miller

Did the deep north of Australia experience racism, discrimination and segregation? Yes. But it was different from the deep south of the USA. A system similar to South African apartheid existed on Aboriginal reserves like Yarrabah in Queensland till as recently as 1984. This book, The Dying Days of Segregation in Australia: Case Study Yarrabah, is unique in that Australian Aborigines themselves tell their story of living under legal discrimination on reserves and discusses their aspirations for self-determination, local government and land rights. Human rights abuses of the law they lived under are discussed in detail as well as government policy that promoted racial discrimination. Race relations are examined. The book is a political history from contact till now between white and black Au...

An Afternoon of Time: Tales of the Great Ocean Road and Country Victoria

by Don Charlwood

In these twelve finely-wrought stories, the countryside of Victoria becomes a small timeless world rich with human experience.Partly based on the author’s own experiences, these stories are united by the land and people they describe and by the character of their narrator, a young man who is at once part of the life around him and a detached observer of it.Whether he is travelling through country haunted by the spirits of his ancestors, being a participant in adventures set among familiar sites on the Great Ocean Road, or taking part in a woolshed dance and a rural cricket match, he is intensely aware both of the mood and scene of the moment and of the past that underlies it.Critics have written of Don Charlwood’s “quiet, meditative, profoundly compassionate tone” and “his power ...

Arnhem Land's Children

by Graham Wilson

It was hot. A sudden stillness was in the late afternoon air. The waterhole's surface shone with unnatural smoothness. Fresh pig tracks at it's edge told of pigs just gone. Two bubbles popped up, their spreading ripples fracturing the tree and sky reflections; just decaying vegetation, said my mind. I should have known better, I should have smelt crocodile!!What is it about the Northern Territory that fascinates?I have only to mention it’s name in conversation and people stop and turn to listen.Why, for 190 years, has it drawn people from all over to come, stay longer than they imagined and, often, never leave?This book is a memoir of a family's life in a remote aboriginal community, in Australia's Northern Territory, something the equivalent of remote Canada or Alaska, where few people ...
