"As a student, Jane Lydon was shocked by the photograph on the cover of Charles Rowley's 1972 classic, The Destruction of Aboriginal Society, which showed two Aboriginal men in neckchains. In this ground-breaking book Lydon uses photography to tell a bigger story of the struggle for Aboriginal rights in Australia. Featuring many iconic photographs and landmark events, she explores the remarkable way which photography has been used as a tool for change." -- Inside cover
