PAT ANDERSON, chair of the Lowitja Institute, Australia's National Institute for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Research, provides generous praise to the authors of this work for their valuable contribution to research and practice of empowerment in Aboriginal health (http://www.lowitja.org.au/promoting-aboriginal-health-family-wellbeing-empowerment-approach). When you read this text you will find that the praise is well deserved. However, it would have been handy if it had also included author profiles, particularly for identifying ethnicity. Identifying ethnicity allows the reader to understand an author's social, historical and political background.
