The work of renowned Australian anthropologist WEH Stanner is given historical and analytical context in this collection of contributions from some of Australia's leading academics in the field of Aboriginal studies. Educated by pioneers of anthropology, including Bronislaw Malinowski, Stanner undertook work in Australia, Africa, and the Pacific, and helped to inform public understandings of Aboriginal beliefs and religion, as well as federal policy towards them. Demonstrating the continuing relevance of his work in light of current debates on Aboriginal affairs, this examination is a reminder of the significant effect Stanner had not only on social science but on the entire world.
