Abstract

From a survey of the origins of the critical issues of law and policy, many of which remain unresolved today, to the serious difficulties encountered by Aboriginals facing the judicial process, the contentious areas of community regulation and policing, and the issues and alarming statistics relating to actual imprisonments, Ivory Scales is essential reading for all who wish to understand the complexities of the prevailing state of Aboriginal affairs in Australia
