A highly regarded history of Australia’s First Nations people since colonisation. Surveying over two centuries of Aboriginal-European encounters, the publication shows how white settlers steadily supplant the original inhabitants by sheer force of numbers, disease, technology and violence. It also tells the story of Aboriginal survival through resistance and accommodation, and traces the continuing Aboriginal struggle to move from the margins of a settler society to a more central place in modern Australia. This historical analysis covers the impact of the Northern Territory Intervention, the mining boom in remote Australia, the Uluru Statement, the resurgence of interest in traditional Aboriginal knowledge and culture, and the new generation of Aboriginal leaders.
