'This book provides one of the most thorough, contextually rich, and clearly explained accounts of the rapid slide backwards in Indigenous affairs, from self-determination and reconciliation to intervention, over the last two decades.'

​Dr ​Christina Spurgeon​, ​School of Communication, Queensland University of Technology

This book offers rich insights into the news media’s role in the development of policy in Australia and explores the complex and interactive relationship between news media and Australian Indigenous affairs. Kerry McCallum and Lisa Waller critically examine how Indigenous health, bilingual education and controversial legislation were portrayed through public media, and they look closely at how Indigenous people were being excluded from policy and media discussion, as well as using the media to their advantage.
