Abstract: 'Aborigines & Activism' is an engaging study of racial awakening that puts Australia's unique experience of the 1960s into an international perspective. Offering historical accounts and cultural analysis, author Jennifer Clark details how supporters of Indigenous Australians and their struggles for equity pushed Australia into the 1960s and all that followed.
