The Law of the Land
Revised edition of a ground-breaking study, first published in 1987, of the colonial authorities' attitudes to Aboriginal land ownership. Argues that the British government conceded land rights 150 years ago and that the British sovereignty did not imply ownership of the country. The author is a professor in history and politics at James Cook University whose other books include 'The Other Side of the Frontier'. This edition contains a postscript on the Mabo case, notes, an index and a bibliography.
