Summary
LAND RIGHTS. AUSTRALIAN. The 1970s was a period of unprecedented political agency and legislative change in Aboriginal people's struggles for the recognition of postcolonial rights. What is significant is that they didn't just seek rights to be granted to them, but for some measure of rights to be restored to them. Against this background, rural communities where large Aboriginal populations lived, were in foment as a consequence of political and economic change, major structural change, social fragmentation and unparalleled unemployment. Politically, neoliberalism became the new orthodoxy recasting the state's role in the economy and redefining government programs and services. In Protest Land Rights and Riots, Barry Morris shows how those policies targeted those least integrated socially and culturally and who enjoyed fewer legitimate economic opportunities

Note
For a generation of Indigenous men and women, the decades following the 1970s produced a period of unprecedented political agency and legislative change in their struggles for recognition of postcolonial rights. Heightening these struggles was the background of great political and economic change. Rural communities, where significant Aboriginal populations continue to live, experienced major structural change resulting in social fragmentation and unparalleled unemployment. At the same time neoliberal political ideology emerged to reshape the state<U+0146>s role in the economy, redefining government programs and services. It was a period of intense political debate, struggle and conflict where new social forces were unleashed and clashed as a postsettler colonial state grappled with its past. In his new work, Barry Morris captures the dramatic changes in Indigenous recognition that occurred in the 1980s that were subsequently undermined by an emerging new political orthodoxy that overlapped and contested previous Indigenous policy in the early 1990s
