AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This collection traces the legacy of Richard Broome’s pathbreaking work in Aboriginal history by presenting innovative work that assesses and transforms a broad range of important debates that have captured both scholarly and popular attention in recent years.

'The book brings together a range of prominent and emerging scholars who have been exploring the contours of the field to make notable contributions to histories of frontier violence and missions, Aboriginal participation in sport and education, ways of framing relationships with land, and the critical relevance of Aboriginal life history and memoir to re-considering Australian history.

'Readers will be interested in the novel arguments on Indigenous networks and mobilities, of memoirs and histories, frontier violence, massacres, and the History Wars, as well as Noel Pearson and issues of paternalism in Aboriginal politics.' (Publication summary)

[Review] Conflict, Adaptation, Transformation: Richard Broome and the Practice of Aboriginal History Jonathan Richards , 2019 single work review
— Appears in: Australian Historical Studies , vol. 50 no. 3 2019; (p. 382-383)

— Review of Conflict, Adaptation, Transformation : Richard Broome and the Practice of Aboriginal History 2018 anthology criticism

'For many years, when teaching both international and domestic students about Australian history, politics and culture, I began by showing the class a copy of Richard Broome’s book Aboriginal Australians: A History since 1788 (first published 1982, latest edn 2010), only changing the book as new editions were published. I always told students that this was the most reliable, informative and up-to-date text on this subject, and his work was essential reading if they wished to really understand Australian history and politics. My positive impression has been further bolstered by the publication of Conflict, Adaptation, Transformation. I believe that this collection honouring Richard Broome’s path-breaking work in Aboriginal history is important and timely. I highly recommend this book.'  (Introduction)
