    An eye-opening chronology of the grassroots campaign to reduce alcohol abuse in the Tennant Creek community through a campaign initiated by the Julalikari Council Aboriginal Corporation. The chronology examines the persistence and tenacity behind the Julalikari's efforts to rally the Tennant Creek community in fighting the problem of alcohol abuse together, as a community problem, not an 'Aboriginal problem'. The book details their efforts in the face of entrenched attitudes by liquor licensees and pub owners in a town that has historically taken no responsibility for their role in introducing alcohol into traditional lands. Issues of profit vs social responsibility are discussed here.
