On the Boundary Line — Colonial identity in fooball

By Barry Judd

Since the establishment of the AFL in 1990, Australian football has increasingly represented itself as Australia's 'national game'. Aboriginal people have played Australian football at the elite level since the early years of the 20th century, and from the 1980s the number of Aboriginal players has increased significantly. This book utilises football to examine what it means to be an Anglo-Australian or an Aboriginal Australian in 21st century Australia.
