“This book deals with the important questions concerning Aboriginal employment, wages and training. It presents facts and opinions drawn from a diverse group of people, all of whom have an interest in some aspects of Aborigines in the economy – Aborigines; Aboriginal advancement groups; Mining industry; Mission societies; Parliaments; Pastoral industry; State and Commonwealth administrations; Trade unions and Universities. Although the three main topics are employment, wages and training, these could not be considered in neat isolation from the whole sociology of Aborigines in Australia. In fact general aspects of Aboriginal affairs – such as the assimilation policy, citizenship rights, social status and the like are also discussed.
Here is a real detail, not generalizations, which opens up lines of exploration, discussion and action that will be of value to everyone concerned with the welfare and future of the Aborigines.”
