  • Epigraphs: 'The call to abandon [inherent] rights assumes that they have been tried and failed. That is incorrect. Indigenous rights - ones that recognize Aboriginal people for what they are, and have the capacity to change their dire living circumstances - have never been embraced as a way forward.' -- William Jonas, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner, Australian 22 May 2002.

White. Routledge, London & New York] 1997: 103.
