Summary
"This book looks at Indigenous peoples' contact with Anglo-Australian law, and deals primarily with the problems the imposed law has had in its relationship with Indigenous people in Australia. This is supplemented by comparative sections on Indigenous peoples' experience of imposed law in other settler jurisdictions such as NZ, Canada and the US. The book covers issues relating to sovereignty, jurisdiction and territorial acquisition; family law and child protection; criminal law, policing and sentencing; land rights and native title; cultural heritage, heritage protection and intellectual property; anti-discrimination law; international human rights law; constitutional law; social justice, self-determination and treaty issues."--From information provided by publisher
