The Quiet Revolution: Indigenous People and the Resources Boom (2012 Boyer Lectures)
ABC Books, $16.99 pb, 175 pp
The Aborigines of Australia are among the more land-rich of colonised peoples. More than one fifth of Australia is under Aboriginal ownership, and a perpetual fund – established by Labor and fattened by Coalition and Labor governments – will add to this estate. To examine this recent change in Australian real estate as a ‘quiet revolution’ was a good choice of theme by Marcia Langton.
