It's Our Country

Booktopia First Nations promotion

Summary

It's Our Country articulates why constitutional accommodation of Aboriginal peoples is important for a nation that is home to the oldest continuous civilisation on earth.

Immerse yourself into a collection of short essays by leading and emerging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander thinkers and leaders. Edited by, and including contributions from, Megan Davis and Marcia Langton, it conveys why Aboriginal peoples should have a direct say in the decisions that affect their lives.

Australia is one of the only liberal democracies still grappling with fundamental questions about the place of indigenous peoples, unlike its common law cousins Canada, the United States and New Zealand.
