AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In his essay, Scott writes: 'The Australian continent was originally multicultural. Many peoples, many nations. Considering that helps you think differently about race and even about frontier conflict. If frontier conflict can also be seen as having something of the nature of international conflict, then it helps to understand ancestors, like my own, who not only were guides, but may have worked as trackers and troopers, and who at certain stages made alliances with the invader, siding with white people against black people' (20).
