This book bravely addresses the fraught issue of Aboriginal child abuse. The author argues that Aboriginal child assults has been formed within the entrenched societal forces of racism, colonization and patriarchy, but notes that it is commonly discussed as an Aboriginal 'problem' with controversial
government responses critiqued as racist and paternalistic. McGlade highlights that the sexual assault of Aboriginal children was integral to the European project of 'civilisation' and that non-Aboriginal society has yet to acknowledge the traumatic impacts. 230 x 152mm., pp. xvii, 284, notes, bibliography, index. large paperback illustrated card covers.
