The Outsiders Within is an engaging account of the ways in which over hundreds of years Indigenous and Southeast Asian people across Australia have traded, inter-married and built hybrid communities. It is also a disturbing exposé of the persistent, sometimes paranoid, efforts of successive white governments to police, marginalise and outlaw these encounters. Peta Stephenson brings to life the three-way relationship between Indigenous, Asian and white Australians by drawing on family narratives and oral histories as well as official documents; and reexamines Australia’s identity, how it is constructed and what it forgets.
