'My Kind of People was published in 1993 by University of Queensland Press as part of its Black Australian Writers series. In this modest book of 154 pages, Wayn e Coolwell, the presenter of the AB C radio program 'Speaking Out', presents interviews with twelve talented Australian Aboriginal people. In his preface, Coolwell states that his aims are to show the diversity that exists in contem-porary Aboriginal society and to attempt to challenge non-Aboriginal people's stereotypes. The book is subtitled 'Achievement, Identity and Aboriginality' and these terms capture the essence of the main issues that Coolwell explores with his subjects.'  (Introduction)
