AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This is the first volume in a series that re-appraises the now widely accepted story about conflict between colonists and Aborigines in Australian history. Beginning in Tasmania, and eventually covering the whole of the Australian mainland, the volumes find that the academic historians of the last thirty years have greatly exaggerated the degree of violence that occurred.'

Works about this Work

Recognition? in Your Dreams Rowan Dean , 2015 single work column
— Appears in: The Courier-Mail , 20 April 2015; (p. 20-21)
'What is a declaration of Indigenous recognition hoping to declare asks Rowan Dean...'
The History Wars Robert Manne , 2009 single work essay
— Appears in: The Monthly , November no. 51 2009; (p. 79)
'Paul Keating and John Howard were early players in what Australians have come to call the History Wars, whose main field of battle is the bitter and still unresolved cultural struggle over the nature of the Indigenous dispossession and the place it should assume in Australian self-understanding.'
Windschuttle's Fabrication of Aboriginal History: A View from the Other Side Vicki Grieves , 2003 single work criticism
— Appears in: Labour History Australian Society for the Study of Labour History , November no. 85 2003; (p. 194-199)
'Grieves argues that... [Windschuttle’s] position demonstrates a great ignorance about Indigenous people, society and culture, past and present, and the basis on which contemporary Indigenous people are asserting their rights. His appeal is to a constituency that shares such ignorance: he positions himself within populist racist ideologies rather than within the ongoing intellectual debate'
y Whitewash Whitewash : On Keith Windschuttle’s Fabrication of Aboriginal History Robert Manne (editor), Melbourne : 2003 9256859 2003 anthology criticism

'In December 2002, The Fabrication of Aboriginal History, Volume One by Keith Windschuttle was published. It argued that violence between whites and Aborigines in colonial Tasmania had been vastly exaggerated and sought to rewrite one of the most troubling parts of Australian history. The book soon attracted widespread coverage, including both high praise and heated criticism.'

'Until now, Windschuttle's arguments have not been comprehensively examined. Whitewash collects some of Australia's leading writers on Aboriginal history to do just this. The result provides not only a demolition of Windschuttle's revisionism but also a vivid and illuminating history of one of the most famous and tragic episodes in the history of the British Empire - the dispossession of the Tasmanian Aborigines.'
