First published in 1964 this book examines the integration of indigenous and white society that was begun over twenty years earlier. It examines the effects the policy had on the lives of the indigenous people and if it was an enlightened decision that took account of the wishes and needs of the indigenous people.  Dr. Reay asked a group of young anthropologists to examine the implications of the policy through research and fieldwork in various key communities. The findings provided a fascinating record of modern indigenous life and a jolt to those who assume that assimilation was going to be the last word. Illustrated with black and white photographs.
