[Review Essay] Rene Baker File No 28/E.D.P Jilpia Nappaljari Jones , John E. Thompson , 2005 single work review
— Appears in: Australian Aboriginal Studies , no. 2 2005; (p. 78-79)

— Review of Rene Baker File #28/E.D.P. Rene Powell Bernadette Kennedy 2005 single work autobiography

'There have been many accounts concerning that most disastrous social experiment that was conducted particularly during the first half of the twentieth century in Australia: the forced removal of part-Aboriginal children. When a new book on the subject is published, one hopes that it will tell us something new, even if to counter the gainsayers who have been gathering pace in recent years. We think that this one does. The title refers to the file of the child Rene Baker, held in the Western Australian Department of Native Affairs. This removed child later became Rene Powell, one of the authors of this book. We reviewers were not able to emulate the way the narrative is divided between Rene as the tragic heroine and Bernadette as the Greek chorus, but will attempt a dialogue between one reviewer who was herself removed (Jilpia) and one who grew up once believing such removal was done with ‘good intentions’ (John). It need hardly be said that such intentions pave the road to Hell.'  (Introduction)
