The Last Protector
The illegal removal of Aboriginal children from their parents in South Australia.
The Last Protector presents a compelling argument that the South Australian government illegally took Aboriginal children from their parents during the years between 1939 and 1954. Adelaide historian Cameron Raynes draws on extensive archival records, the contents of which have never before been available to the public.

Praise for The Last Protector:
'This is an important book, distinguishing the history of South Australian Stolen Generations from practice in other States of Australia. Its publication by Wakefield Press shows the importance of small independent publishers who are willing to publish books for their intrinsic value rather than just to make a profit.' - Lisa Hill, ANZ Litlovers
