Synopsis:

Based on extensive archival and oral history research as well as on personal connections with the community, this volume challenges the prevailing negative view of Palm Island, Australia, and argues against the failure to address today?s continuing Indigenous disadvantage. This substantial history recounts some of the most explosive episodes in Queensland history, including the 1930 rampage by the first Superintendent, the community-wide strike by reserve workers in 1957, and the tragic death in custody of Mulrunji Doomadgee, which triggered civil unrest within the Indigenous community. Often heart-wrenching and at times uplifting, this account is essential reading for anyone interested in the dynamics of power and privilege and their contestation.

About the Author:

Joanne Watson is a writer and a teacher in the fields of Australian social history, workplace relations, cultural studies, and social health. She has more than 30 years of experience working with Indigenous people. She currently works at the Metropolitan South Institute of Technical and Further Education.

Book Description Aboriginal Studies Press. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Palm Island: Through a Long Lens, Joanne Watson, In November 2004, Mulrunji Doomadgee's tragic death triggered civil unrest within the Indigenous community of Palm Island. This led to the first prosecution of a Queensland police officer in relation to a death in custody. Despite prolonged media attention, much of it negative and full of stereotypes, few Australians know the turbulent history of "Australia's Alcatraz", a political prison set up to exile Queensland's 'troublesome blacks'. In "Palm Island", Joanne Watson gives the first substantial history of the island from pre-contact to the present, set against a background of some of the most explosive episodes in Queensland history. The repressive regimes were under the guise of protectionism. But police control continues, and there is a continuing failure to address the causes of ongoing Indigenous disadvantage. "Palm Island", often heart-wrenching and at times uplifting, is a study in the dynamics of power and privilege, and how it is resisted. Bookseller Inventory # B9780855757038
