"This is an excellent forensic analysis of the dilemmas of well intentioned white development workers in the intercultural, post-colonial setting of a region of a settler society that is still unsettled. It is well written and engaging ... It is scrupulously balanced, strives to be complete, and is consistently well argued." * Patrick Sullivan, University of Notre Dame "This book breaks new ground in the study of postcolonial identity politics. Its analysis of the complex motivations, aspirations and ethical ambiguities arising from the legacy of colonialism is both compelling and certain to prompt productive debate." * David Trigger, University of Queensland
