Book Description and Condition

Book description and condition

'Throwing off the Cloak' opens a window onto the Torres Strait Islands people's struggles for control over their own lives, and recognition of their unique island identities and aspirations. Foregrounding the Islanders' views throughout, Osborne explores the debates centering on their struggle to recover

their rights to their land, sea, fish resources, and to make decisions for their own wellbeing. A successful example of their passive resistance and emerging skills in dealing with political leaders was the successful Border Not Change protest. 230 x 154mm., pp. xvii, 188, map, black & white plates, references, index. Trade paperback, pictorial card covers. Contents, no inscriptions; card covers, no reading creases. NEAR FINE
