Summary
This major work reveals the dark heart of the history of the Stolen Generations in Australia. It shows that, from the earliest times of European colonization, Aboriginal Australians experienced the trauma of loss and separation, as their children were abducted, enslaved, institutionalized, and culturally remodeled. Providing a moving and comprehensive account of this tragic history, this study covers all Australian colonies, states, and territories. The analysis spans 200 years of white occupation and intervention, from the earliest seizure of Aboriginal children, through their systematic state removal and incarceration, and on to the harsh treatment of families under the assimilation policies of the 1950s and 1960s. The resistance struggle and achievements of Aboriginal people in defending their communities, regaining their rights and mending the broken circles of family life provides a compelling parallel story of determination and courage
Summary
Broken Circles is the story of Australia's Stolen Generations. It is a major work, revealing the dark heart of the shared history of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians. Aboriginal child removal emerges as an essential part the processes of dispossession, depopulation and destruction of Aboriginal societies and cultures that began with colonisation and continue to affect Aboriginal communities to this day. Anna Haebich provides a comprehensive and accessible national overview of events from the earliest abductions of Aboriginal children by colonists, to the systematic removal and institutionalisation of the first half of the twentieth century and the treatment of children and their families under the assimilation policies of the fifties and sixties. She also tells of the struggles and achievements of Aboriginal people to return control over the children to their families
