Overview

Surveying two centuries of Aboriginal-European encounters, this powerful and comprehensive history of Australian race relations from colonial times to the present day traces the continuing Aboriginal struggle to move from the margins of colonial society to a rightful place in a modern nation. Here, the history of Australia is related from the standpoint of the original Australians—those who lost most in the country's early colonial struggle for power—revealing just how much white Australia lost through unremitting colonial invasion, and relating the story of Aboriginal survival through resistance and accommodation. This fully updated edition explains the land rights struggle since Mabo; the Hindmarsh Island case; debates over the "stolen generation," "sorry," and reconciliation; and the contemporary Aboriginal Australian experience.

Author Biography: Richard Broome, a professor of history at LaTrobe University, is the author of Sideshow Alley with Alick Jackomos, Treasure in Earthen Vessels: Protestant Christianity in New South Wales, 1900-1914, Coburg, and Arriving.
