Summary
'Drawing on over four years of participant-observation of government bureaucrats in the health department of the Northern Territory of Australia, this thesis is primarily about the work and passions of bureau-professionals who dream of solutions to the problems of Aboriginal health, and secondarily about what it takes to be a bureaucrat, together with what it takes to become one. It is organised in two main parts, covering firstly the institutional setting, and secondly the activities of bureau-professionals as they learn about and then attempt to execute their assigned tasks. The argument, in brief, is that whil the issues surrounding ppor Aboriginal health are undeniably real, how bureau-professionals formulate this as a dominant problematic is undeniably cultural...'
