Land, Children and Politics : Native Americans and Australian Aborigines 1900–1930, John Maynard , 2014 single work criticism

'In this publication to honour Professor Ann Curthoys this article considers the comparative aspects of Native American and Australian Aboriginal political activism in the time period 1900–1930. Central to the study is the importance of revealing the missing chapters of Indigenous political history in both the countries during these important and largely overlooked decades. The approach undertaken is restorative history and privileges the tools of historical narrative (story). The current study places the significance and impact of Indigenous campaigners at the forefront of an awakening awareness of the shared political and racial challenges confronting Indigenous people in the USA and Australia. There were many similar issues confronting both the Indigenous groups. These included the pressures applied on Indigenous land and its resources and the removal of Indigenous children from their families. The article highlights the tactics and voices of Indigenous opposition in fighting courageously for their rights and people.'

Lest We Forget Black Diggers : Recovering Aboriginal Anzacs on Television, James Bennett , 2014 single work criticism

'Historical scholarship on the recovery of Aboriginal Anzacs in twentieth-century Australia is a field that has developed significantly in recent years. As knowledge of Indigenous service in overseas wars grows, the more these narratives have begun to be disseminated through a range of public history sites and audiences. This article focuses on the representation of Aboriginal people in the First World War in postcolonial documentaries made for television. The major emphasis will be on six documentaries screened on public broadcasters that foreground Aboriginal voices in revealing forgotten war service. Television has the capacity to reach a mass audience and therefore occupies an important position in challenging the monolithic white Anzac legend. However, the role of television as a legitimate communicator of historical argument is contested by many historians. This article contends that historical documentary possesses some advantages over the traditional written canon especially as a medium for Aboriginal storytelling. All of the examples selected effectively develop the audience's appreciation of the complex interplay of forces surrounding the home front, war service and its legacy. They do so by drawing on a range of personal narratives centred around emotion, identity and empathy and in so doing gesture towards reconciliation.'
