Description


Previous studies of the mining industry's influence on Australian policy have been forced to rely on informed speculation about the industry's actions. Hawke's Law is the first to benefit from unrestricted access to industry sources and documentation, including mining-industry archives and interviews with top executives. It is also the only definitive study of the Labor Party government's long-promised attempt to formulate national Aboriginal rights legislation.
