AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Language is power. It is used to describe and direct events fictional and true. This book describes how historians have manufactured a flattering Australian race relations history. Even today shameful colonial attitudes prevail - a new colonialism has emerged through our language.

'Conned! challenges established perceptions of indigenous Australians or Koories, as the author prefers to name Aborigines. Dr Fesl, a recognised linguist and Koorie culture specialist, brings unique insight to the suppressive role and divisive politics of language - a dilemma that affects all Australians, black and white. She makes clear the invisible text which creates a false and oppressive image of Koories as being inferior and in need of paternalistic aid.' (Publisher's blurb)
