Quick Overview

North America, New Zealand, and Australia were colonized by England under an international legal principle that is known today as the doctrine of discovery. This book analyses how England applied this doctrine to gain control over the lands, property, government, and human rights of Indigenous peoples, and how this control continues to this day.
