Summary Buraadja provides a powerful account of the Liberal Party's approach to Indigenous affairs. The party's record of successes and failures is frankly evaluated as an important basis for developing effective approaches to persistent problems.The problems faced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people today areconsidered through two contrasting lenses: the extremist lens of the Black LivesMatter movement, and the moderate lens of the Uluru Statement from the Heart.The Uluru Statement is shown to offer a modest approach to addressing problems by recognising Indigenous peoples in the Constitution, making agreements, and coming to terms with Australia's history.Andrew Bragg draws on liberal values to make a compelling case for nationalreconciliation in Australia. He offers some practical suggestions for rememberingour history, listening to Indigenous people, and planning for the future.
