This is a book of immense power...a major event in the history of Australian self-understanding. Do not underestimate it. (Adelaide Advertiser)

One Blood is a powerful, disturbing and inspiring book...It has certainly helped my own self-understanding...(The Canberra Times)
One Blood is an immense book, immense in its physical size ( almost 1000 pages) and immense in its scope and breadth of treatment of the encounter between Aboriginal people and those who came to them as Christian missionaries, an encounter spanning 200 years and a whole continent. No one knows more about this subject than John Harris and no one else will ever deal with it again with his unique mix of scholarship and passion... (Church Scene)

This book has been out of print for quite a while and its updated version (to mid-1993 events)and its return in a digital format will, I am sure, be welcomed by many new readers seeking to broaden their understanding of the issues as relating to the Australian Indigenous communities. It still contains the many illustrations, maps, references and footnotes which allow the serious reader to be able to follow up on issues of interest.
