Summary
"The links between communists and Aboriginal activism have often been acknowledged, but there has been no corresponding attempt to analyse systematically the impact of anti-communism on Aboriginal activism. This article seeks to explore this influence by placing Aboriginal affairs in a Cold War context, concentrating on the 1960s and early 1970s. It examines the policies and actions of key individuals and organisations including Charles Perkins, the Office of Aboriginal Affairs and its Director Barrie Dexter, the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation and, particularly, the prominent Australian cold warrior, W C Wentworth. This examination reveals that anti-communism had a significant impact on Aboriginal affairs, which manifested itself in a variety of ways." [Authors abstract ]
