The Forgotten People

Liberal and conservative approaches to recognising indigenous peoples

Damien Freeman, Shireen Morris
Foreword by Noel Pearson
The Forgotten People challenges the assumption that constitutional recognition of indigenous Australians is a project of the left in Australia.

It demonstrates that there may be a set of reforms that can achieve the change sought by indigenous leaders, while addressing the critical concerns of constitutional conservatives and classical liberals. More than that, this collection illustrates the genuine goodwill that many Australians, including Major General Michael Jeffery, Cardinal George Pell, Chris Kenny and Malcolm Mackerras, share for achieving indigenous recognition that is practically useful and symbolically powerful.
