Reviews

"The life portrayed in these pages will above all else challenge our capacity to look into this blighted page of our history and to deal with and understand the nature of our national racist cancer." --Patrick Dodson, winnter, 2008 Sydney Peace Prize
"In this detailed and delicate biography, Quentin Beresford tells a story of triumph and of tragedy. I cannot think of a finer introduction to Aboriginal politics in the contemporary era. I urge all Australian citizens who care about reconciliation to read it." --Robert Manne, professor of politics, La Trobe University
