Indigenous Crime and Settler Law: White Sovereignty after Empire

Front Cover
Palgrave Macmillan UK, Aug 21, 2012 - Law - 280 pages
In a break from the contemporary focus on the law's response to inter-racial crime, the authors examine the law's approach to the victimization of one Indigenous person by another. Drawing on a wealth of archival material relating to homicides in Australia, they conclude that settlers and Indigenous peoples still live in the shadow of empire.
