Native Title in Australia: An Ethnographic Perspective
Native title continues to be one of the most controversial political, legal and indeed moral issues in contemporary Australia. Ever since the High Court's Mabo decision of 1992, the attempt to understand and adapt native title to different contexts and claims has been an ongoing concern for that broad range of people involved with native title claims. In this book, Peter Sutton sets out fundamental anthropological issues to do with customary rights, kinship, identity and spirituality that are highly relevant for lawyers and others working on land claims cases.
