This book presents the first comprehensive use of political theory to explain indigenous politics, assessing the ways in which indigenous and liberal political theories interact in order to consider the practical policy implications of the indigenous right to self-determination. Dominic O’Sullivan here reveals indigeneity’s concern for political relationships, agendas, and ideas beyond ethnic minorities’ basic claim to liberal recognition, and he draws out the ways that indigeneity’s local geopolitical focus, underpinned by global developments in law and political theory, can make it a movement of forward-looking, transformational politics.
Review Quotes
Lindsey Te Ata o Tu MacDonald, University of Canterbury, New Zealand
"An incredible and seminal work. The first book-length study of comparative indigenous politics to examine the indigenous domination of Fijian politics. O'Sullivan coherently and expertly explains the diverse expressions of indigenous self-determination across New Zealand, Australia, and Fiji."
