AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Henry Reynolds presents a different history of Australia through the eyes of remarkable and largely forgotten people. This story begins with Australia's first punitive expedition in December 1790 and the first clash of conscience about the use of violence which took place between Governor Arthur Phillip and Lieutenant William Dawes. It ends on the eve of World War II with Harry Bennett still expressing deep anger about the condition of the Aboriginies and the attitudes of whites Australia.' (Source: Goodreads website)

Works about this Work

Furphy as (Metafictive) Aboriginal Ethnographer Frances Devlin-Glass , 2013 single work criticism
— Appears in: JASAL , vol. 13 no. 1 2013;
'This paper investigates Furphy’s ethnographical writings on Aborigines in the short essays and paragraphs he wrote for the Bulletin and in one of his short stories. It also examines his representation of Toby, a part Aboriginal stockman in Such is Life, and concludes by examining one of the most difficult passages in a colonial era novel, his account of a Palmer River Aboriginal attack, cannibalism, and settler murder in The Buln-buln and the Brolga. These Aboriginal-focussed narratives are told as part of a suite of realistic tales by Barefooted Bob and Tom Collins, by way of counter-narrative to Fred Falkland Pritchard’s fantastical romance/action tales which belong to the ripping yarns/Boy’s Own tradition. The paper argues that, although the narrative method, in its refusal to editorialise, is uncharacteristically and unnervingly oblique, there is more than a little of Lilian Pritchard, the Lady Novelist, in Furphy himself and that the questions he puts into the mouth of the Lady Journalist about Aboriginal culture are probing and pungent.'
