Summary
Examines separation law, policy and practices in New South Wales from colonial times through to the 1960s; draws on lived experiences to illustrate past and current effects of separation on Aboriginal people; argues that over-representation of Aboriginal children in substitute care is evidence of the continuing practice of separation in child welfare; makes recommendations relating to service needs, compensation and child placement and care
