Booktopia

Summary

The author shares his knowledge of the background to the debate on Aboriginal land rights and welfare payments. Charles Rowley died just as this book was completed.

In Recovery: The Politics of Aboriginal Reform he leaves a powerful and personal testament addressed to all Australians. He criticises the Hawke government's procrastination and equivocation of the Aboriginal land rights issue.

A keen advocate of reconciliation and restitution and a member of the Aboriginal Treaty Committee, Rowley also wrote "In A Matter of Justice" (1978) where he reproached the Fraser government for not sustaining the commitment to land rights affirmed by its predecessor.
