Native title issues continue to affect a wide range of interests, not only through native title litigation, but also in areas such as planning and development, and mineral exploitation.

These respected barristers have drawn upon their extensive experience in native title and related areas to produce this important and timely work following the High Court's decisions in Ward and Yorta Yorta. It comprises introductory chapters which place the Native Title Act 1993 in context and explain essential principles and concepts, together with the Act and detailed commentary.

This long awaited title provides a sound understanding of the law of native title in Australia. The Native Title Act 1993 is annotated and explained in detail, with comprehensive references to relevant authority and materials. The introductory chapters place the Act in context, and explain essential concepts and principles, which underpin the Act, including relevant principles of constitutional, property and discrimination law. The authors’ extensive experience in this and related areas finds reflection in the depth of analysis and practical insights provided by the book.

This outstanding new work will provide a valuable contribution to the area of native title law, and appeal to practitioners and those who advise in this area.

A resource CD is included for immediate access to the significant cases referred to in the text, and to key legislation.
