The Power of Knowledge, the Resonance of Tradition

Luke Taylor, Dr Graeme K Ward, Richard Davis, Graham Henderson, Lynley Wallis

$34.95 RRP incl. GST
Category: Anthropology and Archaeology, History
Published: Apr, 2005
Format: Paperback
ISBN: 9780855754846

The power of knowledge, the resonance of tradition is a ground-breaking critique of the concept of ‘tradition’ applied in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander context. The authors offer a refreshing new style of analysis. In writing that is rich in detail, strong in analysis and informed by their research experience they argue for a deeper appreciation of the creativity inherent in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander social life, and the way that knowledge is constructed and deployed in complex intercultural contexts in contemporary Australia.
