Summary "In December 1997, in a small town in rural Australia, a fight broke out among local Aborigines that turned into a full-blown riot when police intervened in force. In Blackfellas, Whitefellas, and the Hidden Injuries of Race, anthropologist Gillian Cowlishaw uses this vivid incident as a means of launching a larger discussion about race, identity, and racialized violence. In this lively, highly readable ethnography, Cowlishaw brings indigenous Australians into the contemporary global race discourse - a discourse largely dominated to date by discussions of African Americans and American Indians in the United States. Cowlishaw's work broadens and enriches discussions of the dramas of a racialized world."
"In the first half of Blackfellas, Whitefellas, and the Hidden Injuries of Race Cowlishaw uses the talk of the town to uncover the complicated story of that hot summer night. Local and national meanings of the riot are exposed and the entrenched racial binary evident in everyday relationships is explored. In the second half of the book, Cowlishaw raises questions about history/memory, citizenship/respect, and interpellation/abjection as means of considering the politics, social science, and psychology of race rivalry and indigenous marginality." "Written both for beginners and those well-versed in contemporary debates, Blackfellas, Whitefellas, and the Hidden Injuries of Race introduces new readers to key theories of race relations and offers more seasoned readers her fresh perspective on racial and Aboriginal politics."--BOOK JACKET
