520 1  The Australian Federal Native Title Act 1993 marked a 
       revolution in the recognition of the rights of Australia's
       Indigenous peoples. The legislation established a means 
       whereby Indigenous Australians could make application to 
       the Federal Court for the recognition of their rights to 
       traditional country. The fiction that Australia was terra 
       nullius (or 'void country'), which had prevailed since 
       European settlement, was overturned. The ensuing legal 
       cases, mediated resolutions and agreements made within the
       terms of the Native Title Act quickly proved the 
       importance of having sound, scholarly and well-researched 
       anthropology conducted with claimants so that the 
       fundamentals of the claims made could be properly 
       established. In turn, this meant that those opposing the 
       claims would also benefit from anthropological expertise. 
       This is a book about the practical aspects of anthropology
       that are relevant to the exercise of the discipline within
       the native title context. The engagement of anthropology 
       with legal process, determined by federal legislation, 
       raises significant practical as well as ethical issues 
       that are explored in this book. It will be of interest to 
       all involved in the native title process, including 
       anthropologists and other researchers, lawyers and judges,
       as well as those who manage the claim process. It will 
       also be relevant to all who seek to explore the role of 
       anthropology in relation to Indigenous rights, legislation
       and the state.
