Aborigines and the administration of justice: a critical analysis of the application of the criminal law to aborigines
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
Until recently the outstanding feature of the literature on Aborigines was the paucity of material on current socio-economic, political and legal aspects of Aboriginal life. More attention is now being paid to these topics but few studies on the relationship between Aborigines and the law have yet been published. Campbell and Whitmore discuss current legislation relating to Aborigines but go on to point out that 'an entire volume would be required to even sketch the practical administration of the laws'. The present volume is an attempt to supply in part this deficiency. It was decided to study not only the administration of special legislation relating to Aborigines but also the administration of the general law as it affected them.
