In this highly original and much-needed book, Clare Land interrogates
the often fraught endeavours of activists from colonial backgrounds
seeking to be politically supportive of Indigenous struggles. Blending
key theoretical and practical questions, Land argues that the
predominant impulses which drive middle-class settler activists to
support Indigenous people cannot lead to successful alliances and
meaningful social change unless they are significantly transformed
through a process of both public political action and critical
Based on a wealth of in-depth, original research, and focussing in particular on Australia, where - despite strident challenges - the vestiges of British law and cultural power have restrained the nation's emergence out of colonizing dynamics, Decolonizing Solidarity provides a vital resource for those involved in Indigenous activism and scholarship.
'Excellent ... The book is written in a way that is accessible to a
range of allies outside academic circles and speaks to real case studies
which can be resonate with other contexts.'
Linda Tuhiwai Smith, author of Decolonizing Methodologies: Research and Indigenous Peoples
'Decolonizing Solidarity is a nuanced and insightful examination of the complexity and challenges of being an ally to Indigenous struggles. It serves as an excellent and much-needed guide for all of us working for, with, or on behalf of marginalized and disenfranchised communities.'
Paul Kivel, educator, activist and author of Uprooting Racism
'Claire Land has written a thoughtful and thought-provoking book. Both profound and practical, she poses vital questions to the reader interested in solidarity and social change.'
Patta Scott-Villiers, Institute of Development Studies
'In this excellent book, Land covers an exceptional breadth of issues with considerable aplomb. It is a provocative and lively read, rich with data that brings indigenous voices to the fore. A hugely welcome contribution.'
Damien Short, School of Advanced Study
