AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Aboriginal freedom-fighters from Pemulwuy and Jandamurra through to Eddie Mabo and many other less acknowledged figures, have made a significant and lasting contribution to the emergence or our nationhood and the the dialectic of reconciliation ... Through a series of review essays, this ... book explodes the myth of minimal resistance to white invasion and domination.' (Back cover of Aboriginal Heroes of the Resistance : Pemulwuy to Mabo)

Notes
