Aboriginal poverty is of the worst kind. It is the poverty of the few alongside the affluence of the many, self-generating, associated with ethnic heritage and colour, and dependent on others for alleviation. In this book an economist deeply concerned that Australians, one of the world{u2019}s wealthiest people, still have in their midst the poorest and possibly the smallest indigenous ethnic minority of any country, proposes urgently and cogently a wholly practical solution to the problem. His starting point is with the Aborigines as all too many of them are now - institutionalised, segregated, dispirited, illiterate, and members of broken families. If the measures he proposes were to start now, integration could be virtually completed by the end of the century. Dr Schapper sets out the necessary and sufficient conditions for Aboriginal advancement to integration, translates these into needs, quantifies them, and gives details of plans and programs. This controversial work is many-sided and should be required reading for administrators, politicians, social and welfare workers, teachers, Aboriginal leaders, students of social anthropology, and - not least - the Australian public.
