A Cautious Silence

The Politics of Australian Anthropology

Book - 2007
Rate this:
To date no explorations of modern Australian social anthropology examine the forces that helped shaped its formation. Geoffrey Gray's new book reveals the struggle to establish and consolidate anthropology in Australia as an academic discipline. He argues that to do so, anthropologists had to demonstrate that their discipline was the predominant interpreter of Indigenous life. Thus they were able, and called on, to assist government in the control, development and advancement of Indigenous peoples.
