"a wonderful story in human terms, it’s an important story in legal terms, and most significantly, it’s a very important story for the integrity of Australia as a just nation."
The Hon Michael Kirby

"Mabo in the Courts carries much of the élan of the ten-year battle - for battle it was, often quite nasty - a scholarly work about a legal contest of a lifetime."
Nonie Sharp
ARENA Vol 118 June/July 2012, pp. 56-59
