Daughters of the Dreaming

Front Cover
University of Minnesota Press, 1993 - Social Science - 342 pages
First published in 1983, this book explores the ritual life of Aboriginal women in Central Australia and is based on the author's fieldwork undertaken in the 1970's. Raising issues about gender relations, the writing of ethnography and feminist research, this second edition includes an epilogue that re-examines the author's work ten years on. The energy, intelligence and sheer talent deployed in this work are formidable. It demands to be read by those who would question the equal role of women in Aboriginal society' - Faith Bandler . This volume should be held in all serious libraries, at any level, concerned with anthropology...' - American Libraries Association Journal .
