It's not a cheery read. Much is explained of the parlous conditions under which many Aborigines labour; especially those still in rural tribal environments. Still, the account shows how persistent efforts led to a seminal decision by the High Court.
The book does not describe the aftermath. In the few years since it came out, little has changed in the typical Aboriginal condition.
