The Politics Of Suffering

Indigenous Australia and The End of the Liberal Consensus

Peter Sutton
Peter Sutton is a fearless and authoritative voice in Aboriginal politics.
'Incandescent, emotional, tragic and challenging' - Marcia Langton

In this groundbreaking book, Peter Sutton asks why, after three decades of liberal thinking, has the suffering and grief in so many Aboriginal communities become worse?
The picture Sutton presents is tragic. He marshals shocking evidence against the failures of the past, and argues provocatively that three decades of liberal consensus on Aboriginal issues has collapsed.
Sutton is a leading Australian anthropologist who has lived and worked closely with Aboriginal communities. He combines clear-eyed, original observation with deep emotional engagement. The Politics of Suffering cuts through the cant and offers fresh insight and hope for a new era in Indigenous politics.
