Product description

Review

"[A] brisk and lucidly written account...This is an important and deeply researched reinterpretation of Australian history and a stark warning about the danger of accepting received wisdom at face value." STARRED REVIEW
--Publishers Weekly

"Unputdownable."
--Darina Allen, Irish Examiner

"The truth-telling must go on."
--Stephen Fitzpatrick, The Australian

"[A]n important book that advances a powerful argument for re-evaluating the sophistication of Aboriginal peoples' economic and socio-political livelihoods, and calls for Australia to embrace the complexity, sophistication and innovative skills of Indigenous people into its concept of itself as a nation."
--Aboriginal History

--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
