about

In a break from the contemporary focus on the law's response to inter-racial crime, the authors examine the law's approach to the victimization of one Indigenous person by another. Drawing on a wealth of archival material relating to homicides in Australia, they conclude that settlers and Indigenous peoples still live in the shadow of empire.

HEATHER DOUGLAS is an associate professor at the TC Beirne School of Law, University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia. MARK FINNANE is ARC Australian Professorial Fellow and Chief Investigator at the ARC Centre of Excellence in Policing and Security, Griffith University, Australia.
