AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'On Rage is Germaine Greer's enduring essay about Aboriginal dispossession. With characteristic acuity and passion, Greer looks to the causes of rage and its consequences in Indigenous Australian men.

'Originally published six months after Prime Minister Kevin Rudd's Apology to the Stolen Generations in 2008, this is an urgent and provocative examination of disempowerment by one of Australia's leading polemicists. ' (Publication summary)
