Book Synopsis
This book is Dedicated to and based upon real-world struggles in and outside of courtrooms, Aboriginal and Eurocentric, for survival and sustainability of Indigenous Peoples. This book explores contradictions—between: Theory and/vs Practice of Law; Law and/vs Justice; Gaps between De Jure promises on paper and/versus De Facto realities--no matter by whom, against whom; under what banners or pretexts of justification; what types of failures; what types of systems of purported Law and Justice. There is an aphorism attributed to Lao Zi: “I hear, I forget. I see, I remember. I do, I understand.” This book is a sort of a tour of discovery, taking you into and through real-world and some notorious, legal cases, real-world legal actions, from the grass-roots up, not simply abstract dry theory down (there is some of that), through some of the profound differences and their implications between Aboriginal theories, systems and principles of Law and Justice.
