by Baker J
|Number of pages
This book uses a theoretical model to explore the position of Indigenous Australians in relation to health science research. It provides a contemporary understanding of Indigenous affairs, particularly in regards to counselling, community development, and policy. The book is comprised of eight chapters, covering the following topic areas:
- Not another native informant
- Reconstructing gender and 'race' relations after the frontier
- Consciousness, abjection and the colonised subject
- Pain as a catalyst for change, for working for change
- 'Changing the terms of the conversation' and moving from "a survival mentality to a living mentality"
- Borderlands: what is happening there?
- Land and spirit: old ways of being
- Conclusion: abjection denies a future of shared joys.
