While in the s, anthropologists took a pro-active stance in promoting Aboriginal rights, the resolution of the anomalous situation regarding Aboriginal property rights and the protection of sacred sites in Australia is no longer being advanced by the profession as a whole. While this book is a step in the right direction in that it confronts the conservative attitudes of an ill-informed public, the powers that be perceive anthropologists like Bell not as objective analysts, but rather as activists advancing their own viewpoints.

Politicians often favor the opinions of pioneers or social geographers with little experience within Aboriginal communities over and above those of trained anthropologists. Diane Bell's immense volume, had it been published a few years earlier, might well have altered the outcome of the Royal Commission. But herein lies the problem. This lively and well-written text was completed in an adversarial situation after the fact. My principal criticism is that there is no immediate answer to the question of how anthropologists can complete such authoritative accounts under normal circumstances and simultaneously be effective advocates of the Aboriginal cause.

A World That Is, Was, And Will Be
Wurruwarrin: knowing and believing. In , a South Australian Royal Commission found Ngarrindjeri women to have "fabricated" their beliefs to stop the building of a bridge from Goolwa to Hindmarsh Island. By , in federal court, the women were vindicated as truth-tellers.
In , the site was registered, but scars remain of that shameful moment. In the Preface to the New Edition, Diane Bell looks to the world that "will be", where talented, committed Ngarrindjeri leaders are building the infrastructure for future generations of the Ngarrindjeri nation and challenging the very foundation of the State of South Australia. The Apology to the Stolen Generations in and its evocation of an inclusive "us" has propelled the Ngarrindjeri on the path to "practical reconciliation". But progress has been uneven. Petty politics, procrastinations and prevarications stand in the way of its realisation.
Diane Bell writes as an insider who is clear about the bases of her engagement with her Ngarrindjeri friends and colleagues. The story will continue to unfold and Diane Bell will be there. There is unfinished business. Contents Pt.
