Reading Doctors' Writing: Race, Politics and Power in Indigenous Health Research, 1870-1969

Reading Doctors' Writing is a book for everyone who reads or writes health research about Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Medical research has been influenced by the politics of colonialism, and by the politics of race, racism and anti-racism.

This history of Indigenous health research fuels the suspicion felt by Indigenous people today about researchers, and research. Reading Doctors’ Writing invites those involved in Indigenous health research to confront rather than evade the history and politics of their work.
