Overall, Indigenous People, Crime and Punishment is an engaging multidisciplinary text. By weaving together a substantive body of law with criminological understanding, Anthony anchors the role of recognition in the sentencing process in a broader social and historical context. Illustrated by recent and relevant cases, legislative reforms and policy changes, each chapter builds logically on the next to culminate in a persuasive argument to the flawed and contradictory process of recognition in sentencing. The narrowed focus of the text, predominantly considering a single theory in a single state jurisdiction, allows it to achieve a depth of analysis not possible for other more general works in this field.
