About the Authors
  • Knowledge of Life is the first textbook to provide students with a comprehensive guide to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australia. The result of extensive research and experience, it offers fresh insights into a range of topics and, most importantly, is written by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander academics. It addresses topics ranging from history and reconciliation, to literature and politics, to art, sport and health. It presents social, cultural and political perspectives on these areas in a manner that is accessible to undergraduate students from a range of backgrounds and academic disciplines. Each chapter opens with a précis of the author's journey to engage students and offer them an insight into the author's experiences. These authentic voices encourage students to think about the wider issues surrounding each chapter and their real-life implications. This timely publication emphasises the importance of relationships between non-Indigenous and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.

    • Each of the notable authors is either an Aboriginal person or a Torres Strait Islander person with vast experience and expertise in their field
    • Each chapter opens with a précis of the author's journey, allowing the reader to engage with the writer and the issues discussed
    • Engaging and accessible writing style to suit students from a range of backgrounds and academic disciplines

    This is an essential resource for teaching all students at university about Aboriginal knowledge positions, and to engage students in a paradigm shift in their understandings. I use whole chapters to inform my teaching (library copy!) and find it is clear in its writing and an easy but rigorous teaching tool.
