From one of the leading thinkers of our time comes a landmark book on the case for constitutional reform - No Small Change: The Road to Recognition for Indigenous Australia by Frank Brennan.
This timely book is a stark reminder of the tainted relationship between successive governments, lawmen and Indigenous Australians, but also a provocative lesson on what we can learn from the past. Brennan unpacks the laws and philosophies from terra nullius, protectionism and forced assimilation to the 1967 referendum, land rights, self-determination and beyond.
Rigorous, accessible, and insightful, No Small Change is a profound document that has the power to change our nation's future.
Frank Brennan is a Jesuit priest, professor of law at the Australian Catholic University, and adjunct professor at the ANU College of Law and the ANU National Centre for Indigenous Studies. Professor Brennan has been actively committed to Indigenous reconciliation, justice and recognition for over 30 years.
