Originally published in 1950, this book compares the impact of white colonialism on the indigenous populations of North America, New Zealand and Australia. Grenfell Price's sensitively-written account does not stint from outlining the failures and abuses perpetrated by white settlers, and the text is illustrated with a number of photographs showing scenes of contemporary 'native' life. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the impact of British colonialism and white views of indigenous populations.
