--Darina Allen, Irish Examiner
"[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."
"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."
