Leading writer, activist and commentator Mudrooroo crosses the cultural divide to speak to all Australians about his people's past, their place in the present and their hopes and aspirations for the future. Keenly felt, vigorously argued and compelling in their sweep, these provocative essays range the spectrum, from Aboriginal spirituality and oneness with the land to the practicalities of health, education and the law. History, culture, politics and, perhaps, reconciliation: "Us Mob" is essential reading for all those wanting to understand the reality of Indigenous Australia in the post-Mabo age.
