An Anthology Celebrating Twenty Years of Land Rights in Central Australia This collection of stories is a resounding tribute to the strength of traditional Aboriginal Law and culture and to the workers for land rights who have helped shape the social and political landscape of a nation. Contributors include Geoff Eames Pat Dodson Gough Whitlam Sir Edward Woodward and Paul Memmott.
This anthology takes us inside the Central Land Council to reveal the political battles, the legal manoevres and the extraordinary people of the fight for land rights in Central Australia. We encounter the human side of powerful modern Aboriginal organisastions at work and we learn the background and personalities of their Aboriginal leaders and staff. We see how, with considerable humour and passion, they continue to meet the challenges of the times. Take Power is a resounding tribute: to the strength of traditional Aboriginal law and culture, and to the workers for land rights who have helped shape the social and political landscape of a nation.
