Title: Broken Circles: Fragmenting Aboriginal Families 1800 - 2000.
Description: Perth, Fremantle Fremantle Arts Centre Press, 2001. Reprint ed. Paperback small thick octavo, very good plus condition, black & white text-photos. Heavy, and extra postage may be requested to destinations outside Australia. 726 pp. A moving and full account of how there was no single Stolen Generation in Australia. Aboriginal families experienced the trauma of loss and separation throughout the entire history of European colonisation - involving Aboriginal children, whether they were abducted, enslaved, institutionalised or culturally remodelled. The analysis spans 200 years of white occupation and intervention, from the earliest seizure of Aboriginal children, through their systematic state removal and incarceration, and on to the harsh treatment of families under the assimilation policies of the 1950s and 1960s. The resistance struggle and achievements of Aboriginal people in defending their communities, regaining their rights and mending the broken circles of family life provides a compelling parallel story of determination and courage.
