AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In critical writing by Peter Minter, Bonny Cassidy and Stuart Cooke, the question of decolonisation in ‘Australia’ is figured to be a question of land. They tend to mean ‘land’ here in the way that it approximates nature, which is to say land resembles undeveloped frontier. There is, of course, an Aboriginal presence to these places, but land is, for the most part, a location that is not urban or built up.'  (Introduction)
