This book provides a solid understanding for readers of the key issues around native title from the minds of leading thinkers, commentators and senior jurists. It consolidates 16 papers presented to the national Native Title Conference since the historic Mabo judgement. Taken together, these commentators tie native title to the fundamental issue of the place of Indigenous peoples within the Australian political and legal framework, and national identity. With contributions about New Zealand, the USA and development in the UN, it also provides a comparative understanding of international Indigenous land rights and interests.Mabo is only mentioned for contextual and historical purposes a not as precedent for many of the bald assumptions and ...
