Product description


"Finally Weatherburn reviews some of the clumsy theorizing that have been at the centre of the debates about the overrepresentation of Indigenous Australians in our criminal justice system since the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Death in Custody in the early 1990s." --Rod Broadhurst, professor of criminology, Australian National University

"In this outstanding new study Don Weatherburn confronts the data, appalling as they are, with his characteristic plain speaking and good sense. No excuses are offered, or simple solutions applied." --Mark Finnane, ARC Australian professorial fellow, Griffith University

"This is a provocative and courageous book by a well-respected criminologist, offering a critique of the over-representation of Indigenous people in custody and of the programs and approaches that are attempting to ameliorate the situation . . . All Australians owe it to Indigenous Australians to reduce these rates of incarceration." --Dr. Maggie Brady, Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research (CAEPR), Australian National University
