About the Authors
  • This book focuses on the problem of justice for indigenous peoples and the key questions this poses for political theory. Contributors include leading political theorists and indigenous scholars from Australia, Aotearoa/New Zealand, Canada and the United States. They examine how political theory has contributed to the past subjugation and continuing disadvantage faced by indigenous peoples, while also seeking to identify ways that contemporary political thought can assist the "decolonization" of relations between indigenous and nonindigenous peoples.

    • Approaches the issue of Aboriginal rights from the perspective of key issues in contemporary political theory
    • Brings together leading contemporary political theorists
    • Focuses on three key concepts: sovereignty, identity, democracy and the nation
