This honest and compelling book follows the fraught, exciting and painful process of getting to know 'others', in this case Australian Aborigines in the suburbs who are already 'known' through shocking images and worrying statistics. Gillian Cowlishaw has written a book about the intimacy of the encounter, the practical and ethical dilemmas of research and the fun of engagement in the city's outback.
