"Aborigines and Political Power" is a study of the efforts by the Aboriginal interest to exercise political influence, to claim a recognized position in the political marketplace. After tracing the changes in white attitudes which led to the 1967 amendment to the Constitution, the book examines those parts of the political system which have helped and hindered the Aboriginal people since then: the federal system, the major parties, the bureaucracies, the legal system, the wide variety of pressure groups, and the media. "Scott Bennett teaches political science at the Australian National University, and is the author of seven books on Australia's political system.".
