The White Possessive: Property, Power, and Indigenous Sovereignty (Indigenous Americas) by Aileen Moreton-Robinson
English | 2015 | ISBN: 0816692149 | 272 pages | PDF | 1.07 MB
The White Possessive explores the links between race, sovereignty, and possession through themes of property: owning property, being property, and becoming propertyless. Focusing on the Australian Aboriginal context, Aileen Moreton-Robinson questions current race theory in the first world and its preoccupation with foregrounding slavery and migration. The nation, she argues, is socially and culturally constructed as a white possession.
