'Daughters of the Dreaming' has taken its place alongside the classics of Australian anthropological literature. First published in 1983, it remains an outstanding study of Aboriginal women's lives from a woman's perspective. 'Daughters of the Dreaming' raised issues about gender relations, the writing of ethnography and feminist research that are still being vigorously debated. In this second edition, Bell revisits her work of the seventies from her standpoint in the nineties. In a thought-provoking epilogue she explores key anthropological questions posed by her analysis of her first fieldwork from her current standpoint as a professor a decade on.
