About the Book

In 1937, the Commonwealth Government and the States resolved to adopt as official policy the removal of Aboriginal children from their families. That policy envisaged the ultimate disappearance of the Aboriginal race. Although this policy was replaced after the Second World War with assimilation, much of the underlying purpose remained. Our State of Mind examines the racial thinking behind these developments. It challenges Australians to focus on critical issues on the nation’s path towards reconciliation.
