A controversial argument for a radical rethink on government policies on Indigenous issues in Australia. Whatever the policy--from protection to assimilation, self-determination to intervention, reconciliation to recognition--government has done little to improve the quality of life of Indigenous people. In far too many instances, interaction with governments has only made Indigenous lives worse. Despite this, many Indigenous and non-Indigenous leaders and commentators still believe that working with the state is the only viable option. The Colonial Fantasy calls for a radical restructuring of the relationship between black and white Australia .
