Recommended to C. by: Some article on JSTOR
Shelves: australian
Apparently this is by a Serbian guy who moved to Australia and lived in the bush (I just wrote book instead of bush) and took on an Aboriginal name. Then he wrote a book that juxtaposes the stolen generation with the practice of enslaving children in Serbia. Or something. It sounds bizarre enough to be interesting.

This book is a complete travesty and should be consigned to the dustbin of history. It is entirely exploitative and written by someone without any principles whatsoever. I would not recommend this to anyone
