Book Review: ‘And there’ll be NO dancing’: Perspectives on Policies Impacting Indigenous Australia since 2007

‘And there’ll be NO dancing’: Perspectives on Policies Impacting Indigenous Australia since 2007 has been reviewed in the the Pacific Journalism Review by Dr Bonita Mason of Curtin University, Perth. A sharp and incisive review, it is available here (requires subscription), and an indicative excerpt is below:

“The 14 chapters present a well-structured, readable and compre­hensive collection of case studies fo­cused on the Intervention or the forces and conditions that helped to create it. They are written for an interna­tional readership, and present a range of disciplines and fields—history, land rights, law, human rights, journalism, literature, film, art, sport, education, post-colonial studies and disability. The book shows how past interventions have consistently failed to meet their objectives and made the circumstances of the Indigenous peoples subjected to them worse.”
