AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Are you part of the non-Indigenous majority? Have you had too little contact with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people? Do you feel that you do not fully comprehend their worldview, but wish you could? Is entrenched Aboriginal disadvantage eating away at your sense of Australia as a fair and united country? Do you still possess the recollection of your first encounter with an Aboriginal person, and wonder why it remains so enduring? Are you troubled by the time being taken to achieve constitutional recognition and frustrated that an apparently simple issue has become so vexed? If these questions resonate in your mind, you have much in common with many Australians and may benefit from reading these books.' (Introduction)

    'Welcome to the November Arts issue. We are delighted to announce Robyn Archer as our new Laureate. Other highlights include our annual survey of critics and arts professionals on their favourite concerts, operas, films, ballets, plays, television programs, and exhibitions. We also look at musical memoirs, rivalry in art, the joys of binge-watching boxed-sets, music competitions during the Cold War, transgressions in cinema, the history of Indigenous art and of the Australian art market, and art during Germany’s Weimar period. ABR Chair Colin Golvan QC explores the cultural risks of parallel importation, and Neal Blewett reviews a new biography of H.V. Evatt. We review new fiction from Margaret Atwood, Jacinta Halloran, Laura Elizabeth Woollett, A. N. Wilson, Sam Carmody, Sean Rabin, Kristel Thornell, and Hebe de Souza, as well as classic fiction from New Zealand. Bill Manhire is our Poet of the Month.' (Publication summary)
