Summary

"This volume examines the impact of racist government legislation and policies upon the indigenous people of Australia over the last 200 years. Pattel-Gray contends that racism in Australia is rooted in the long and corrupt relationship between government and church. The persistence of racism in every area of Australian society is documented, from government to schools to courts to churches, and the illusory humanitarian and human rights stances of both institutions are here exposed. The author argues that racism is an endemic and chronic problem that must be addressed and solved. This book defines and clarifies racist terminology and language, reviews historical and contemporary expressions of Australian racism, and assesses both the concept and the recent process of reconciliation in Australia."--BOOK JACKET.
