Summary Native Title in Australia, 4th edition is a comprehensive and authoritative work that provides the reader with an understanding of both the current operation of native title in Australia and its historical and political background and development. It covers the nature of the concept, its proof, content and extinguishment, explains the validation of past grants and acts and the limited degree of protection from future acts, examines compensation for native title, and discusses the application of native title principles to resource development and traditional pursuits. It considers both the common law and the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) The fourth edition of this highly regarded work includes discussion on: the consistent recognition of exclusive possession, use and enjoyment; the impact of the compensation case, Griffiths (HCA - 2019); the increasing use of consent determinations and the Noongar Native Title Settlement; the implications of BHP (FFC - 2018) undermining the Native Title Act future act process and the greater adherence to principles of equality by the courts, especially as to extinguishment. --.
