Table of Contents

Introduction: Re-imagining the Indigenous criminal; Chapter One: Control metaphors in Indigenous sentencing; Chapter Two: Colonial and postcolonial Indigenous punishment; Chapter Four: Sentencing away culture and customary marriage; Chapter Five: Traditional Punishment in the New Punitiveness; Chapter Six: Sentencing 'disadvantaged alcoholics'; Chapter Seven: Sentencing Indigenous resisters as if the racism never occurred; Conclusion/Epilogue: Burgeoning control metaphors in sentencing


Overall, Indigenous People, Crime and Punishment is an engaging multidisciplinary text. By weaving together a substantive body of law with criminological understanding, Anthony anchors the role of recognition in the sentencing process in a broader social and historical context. Illustrated by recent and relevant cases, legislative reforms and policy changes, each chapter builds logically on the next to culminate in a persuasive argument to the flawed and contradictory process of recognition in sentencing. The narrowed focus of the text, predominantly considering a single theory in a single state jurisdiction, allows it to achieve a depth of analysis not possible for other more general works in this field.
