The Myth of Privilege examines the roles played by the media, politicians, governments, lobby groups, academics and the changing economy in shaping the public debate about Aboriginal policy and political status since the 1960s. It suggests ways in which we might more effectively respond to the 'democratic' rhetoric of the current populism and its claims to champion the cause of ordinary Australians.
