European colonisation has marginalised the `first peoples' in industrialised countries such as Australia and Canada. In remote regions, still the homes of large Aboriginal, Indian and Inuit populations, this legacy remains strong.
Modernisation - the `boom and bust' model of state and private development - and the partial and biased assistance provided by the state have eroded many communities through their disregard for socio-economic structures and the beliefs which underpin them.
Third World in the First explores the past, present and future of these peoples, their treatment by the `West' and the alternative strategies of development which might be available to them.

MEDIA REVIEWS
..."a rich and detailed discussion of various development models... ...this book does provide a thorough historical report on development in the two regions, and should certainly be required reading for anyone considering comparative research in [Canada and Australia]."
-"Transcultural Psychiatry
"Young's work compares contemporary Canada and Australia vis-a-vis remote area economic development and its impact on aboriginal peoples.... Young concludes that achievement of sustainable development for aboriginal people can occur only when a secure land base, e.g., Nunavut Canada, is in the hands of its original owners.."
-"Choice
"This is a lushly produced book, complete with many photographs, figures and tables. It demonstrates the value of international comparisons of Indigenous issues, and transcends academic disciplines. A geographer by training, Young focuses on the land and the relationship of Aboriginal peoples to it."
-James Waldram, University Saskatchewan, "Journal of Political Ecology
