Tension between national economic imperatives and the interest of indigenous populations in mining areas continues to be an unresolved issue of great importance in Asian-Pacific nations. Mining and Indigenous Peoples in Australasia provides a detailed review of the relations between these twogroups in diverse national, political, and cultural settings. With examples drawn from five nations and covering gold, uranium, diamonds, and copper, this book provides a thorough assessment of the central issues - dispossession, land rights, and compensation.
