Indigenous Children Growing Up Strong

This edited collection by leading Australian Aboriginal scholars uses data from the Longitudinal Study of Indigenous Children (LSIC) to explore how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children are growing up in contemporary Australia. The authors provide an overview of the study, including the Indigenous methodological and ethical framework which guides the analysis. They also address the resulting policy ramifications, alongside the cultural, social, educational and family dynamics of Indigenous children's lives. Indigenous Children Growing Up Strong will be of interest to students and scholars in the areas of sociology, social work, anthropology and childhood and youth studies.

"This volume ... is significant for all Indigenous people and particularly those living in the settler states. It gives expression to issues around data sovereignty and what can be learnt when we draw on our own data to inform our own decision making.". (Tracey McIntosh, The University of Auckland, New Zealand) "This book is unique in many ways, including the significant number of Aboriginal authors who provide an insider's perspective of what it means to be Aboriginal." (Bronwyn Carlson, University of Wollongong, Australia) "This is a long-overdue and critically important book that provides an up-to-date, and comprehensive picture of Australia's Aboriginal children and the physical, social, economic, and cultural contexts in which they are growing." (Michelle Harris, University at Albany, USA)
