Broken Circles

Written by Anna Haebich

There was no single Stolen Generation, there were many, and Broken Circles is their story. This major work reveals the dark heart of this history. It shows that, from the earliest times of European colonisation, Aboriginal Australians experienced the trauma of loss and separation as their children were abducted, enslaved, institutionalised and culturally remodelled.

Anna Haebich provides a moving and comprehensive account of this tragic history, covering all Australian colonies, states and territories and spanning 200 years of white occupation and intervention.
