AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The story of Australia's resistance hero, Pemulwuy, who kept British settlement around Sydney restricted for 12 years 1790-1802.' (Source: GoodReads website)

Notes

  • Dedication: The British landed at the bay of Kamay on the east coast of Australia in 1788. Governor King is credited with breaking the Australian resistance in 1805. This novel is dedicated to those first Australians who fought and gave their lives against an invader.

    This novel is especially dedicated to two remarkable Australians. The first is Pemulwuy, the man who led the resistance between 1790 and 1802, and in whose blood the city of Sydney and, indeed, modern Australia were built. The second is Charles Nelson Perkins, whose spirit and determination are the essence of modern Australia's identity.

  • Other formats: Also braille, sound recording and electronic source.

Critical Whiteness and Australian Aboriginal Novels Xing Chunli , 2015 single work criticism
— Appears in: Oceanic Literary Studies , no. 2 2015; (p. 14-31)
'Since the 1990s, Critical Whiteness Studies has become established as an interdisciplinary field. Centering round the critique of whiteness as a socially constructed ideology, it has led race studies into a new historical stage. It encompasses multiple fields in humanities and social sciences, while furnishing new perspectives for literary studies. Drawing in the theories of Critical Whiteness Studies, this paper focuses on the analyses of two historical novels by the Aboriginal writers in Australia, Eric Wilmott's Pemulwuy and Kim Scott's Benang : From the Heart. Resorting to distinct discursive strategies, the two novels have attempted to render whiteness visible and subvert the hegemonic historical narrative constructed by the colonizers. In the meantime, the novels have aired the collective appeals of the Aboriginal people and reconstructed from the Aboriginal perspective the Australian history disrupted by the colonial invasion..
