Serious Whitefella Stuff

When solutions became the problem in Indigenous affairs

Mark Moran
With individual chapters by Alyson Wright and Paul Memmott.
How does Indigenous policy signed off in Canberra work—or not—when implemented in remote Aboriginal communities? Mark Moran, Alyson Wright and Paul Memmott have extensive on-the-ground experience in this area of ongoing challenge.
