North Melbourne Australian Scholarly Publishing 2015 1925003655 / 9781925003659 1st Edition Trade Paperback 
MINT - a NEW copy. 291 pages Examines the 1940s Northern Territory based work of noted anthropologists Ronald and Catherine Berndt, the relationship with the, then, large cattle producing concern, Vesteys and the Aboriginal people. Abrogating Responsibility seeks answers to the question: how was it possible, with so much knowledge about the horrendous conditions Aboriginal people laboured and lived in, and so many well-intentioned agencies and individuals, that nothing changed? Ensuing the laying of blame the book's careful and detailed analysis opens up new insights into a system that placed Aborigines at the end of the line in a series of relationships on a local, state, and national level ID286443
