The Colonial Fantasy Why white Australia can't solve black problems (event sold out)

  • New International Book Shop 54 Victoria Street Carlton, VIC, 3053 Australia (map)

The New International Book Shop Presents a talk by Sarah Maddison, Professor of Politics at the University of Melbourne, who will talk about her new book: The Colonial Fantasy Why white Australia can't solve black problems.

The book argues that white Australia can't solve black problems because white Australia is the problem. Australia has resisted the one thing that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people want, and the one thing that has made a difference elsewhere: the ability to control and manage their own lives. It calls for a radical restructuring of the relationship between black and white Australia.
