AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'First published in 1973, Kevin Gilbert's controversial account of Aboriginal affairs is a damning portrait of the colonisation of Australia by Britain and the problems that have resulted. It tells the story of land theft, attempted racial extermination, oppression, denial of human rights, slavery, ridicule, denigration, inequality and paternalism. And it posits a solution seemingly incomprehensible to many and it examines what the indigenous people really want - land, compensation, discreet non-dictatorial help, but most of all to be left alone by white Australia.'

Notes

  • Includes a few poems.
  • Dedication: This book is dedicated to the Aboriginal patriots of Australia who have refused to sell out, have refused to pay that ultimate 'price of survival' demanded by the white boss... and to the mass of blacks, 'poor buggers all', who are still waiting...It is also dedicated to Cora my wife, friend, mate,'little twin sister' and favourite gubbah - who helped me write it.
