AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The popular saying goes that if you can remember the 60s then you weren't really there, but the 60s are much more than a hazy mixture of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. The story of the coming of the 60s to Australia is the story of Aboriginal activism. Aborigines & Activism is an engaging study of stories of racial awakening in Australia that marked the coming of the 'wind of change.' Through rigorous research, the author shows how supporters of Indigenous Australians, and their struggles for equity, pushed Australia into the 60s - literally and figuratively. The book also puts the Australian experience of the 60s into an international perspective, portraying the experience as unique but not isolated. Aborigines & Activism is an interesting and unique contribution to existing literature on race, culture, Aboriginal issues, and the 1960s.' (Publication summary)
