Validating Preferences : Aborigines and the Narratives of Two Missionary Travellers, Paul Miller , single work criticism
Analysing the narratives of James Backhouse and R. B. Plowman, Paul Miller concludes that readers need to be aware of the strategies adopted by the two writers 'to validate their preferences'. Readers need to appreciate 'the pool of socio-cultural circumstances that condition' Backhouse and Plowman's preferences. 'What emerges', says Miller, 'are texts with "facts" that are all but transparent and contructions of Aboriginal peoples adapted to affirm the travellers' personal and imperial agendas'.
