Dear colleagues, 

I'm pleased to announce a new book available now from Routledge: Planning in Indigenous Australia: From imperial foundations to postcolonial futures

The book analyses the relationship between planning and Indigenous peoples in Australia in historical and contemporary terms. It rewrites the histories of 3 major Australian cities from the perspective of that relationship, sets out the obligations of planning in relation to Indigenous land rights, native title and cultural heritage, and charts the new ways planning must now respond to Indigenous peoples' claims and aspirations.

My co-authors Sue Jackson, Louise Johnson and I hope this will be a useful text for planning students and educators especially in light of the new accreditation requirements from the Planning Institute of Australia.

Best wishes
Libby Porter
