Abstract

It is disappointing when a nascent field of study (in an Australian context anyway), emerges seeming already tired and dated. This is not a problem with Whiteness Studies per se, but with its application here. In too many of the 17 contributions in this volume a politics and ideology forecloses against the formulation of the sort of revelatory enquiry that Whiteness Studies potentially offers. Nevertheless, despite these shortcomings there are some thoughtful and interesting chapters here.
