y separately published work icon Literature and the Aborigine in Australia 1770- 1975 J. J. Healy , St Lucia : University of Queensland Press , 1978 Z383631 1978 single work criticism An historical overview of the literary representations of Australian Aboriginals by white writers from first contact till the mid-1970s. The author looks at poetry and prose in historical sequence. The subject of the work deals with the efforts of white Australian writers to come to grips with Aboriginal Australians. The author argues that the interest in Australian Aboriginals as literary subjects is touched by an interest in themselves, in Australia itself as a land, and as a social-political structure.

y separately published work icon Black Words, White Page : Aboriginal Literature 1929-1988 Adam Shoemaker , St Lucia : University of Queensland Press , 1989 Z106800 1989 single work criticism (taught in 1 units)

Shoemaker's primary concern is to look at the beginning of 'black people's' writing in Australia since the 1960s and focus on the nascent literary canon emerging through Aboriginal writing. Shoemaker moves the readership through non-Aboriginal authors such as Katharine Susannah Prichard (1929) and Xavier Herbert (1938) in a chapter entitled 'Popular Perceptions of Unpopular People to Progress and Frustrated Expectations: The Era Since 1961'. Where Aboriginal writing begins, for Shoemaker's purposes, is an area of literary production he describes as 'fourth world literature'.

  • Is the Australian publishing industry flourishing or floundering?
  • What is the future of the book?
  • Has lifestyle replaced literary publishing?
  • Have new technologies revolutionised the nature of the industry?

'Making Books addresses these questions and many others in a wide-ranging study of contemporary Australian publishing. It also provides a sophisticated introduction to the structure and dynamics of the Australian publishing industry which turns over almost two billion dollars a year.

'Leading industry practitioners and academics analyse the industry in the context of social, cultural and legal forces. They write revealingly on the culture of the publishing house, editorial practice and policy, Bookscan, new technologies and the 'decline' of literary publishing.

'Making Books will be an indispensable companion for arts industry professionals, those in the publishing industry, and scholars of book history or publishing studies.' (Publisher's blurb)
