285 indexed pages. Blainey sees Aboriginals as a successful race, triumphant in their discovery of the land, in their adaptation to it, and in their mastering of its climates, seasons and reserves. A startling reassessment of the Aboriginals in early Australia. Rather than being prisoners in a hostile continent, the Aboriginals were a successful race - triumphant in their discovery of the land, triumphant in their adaptation to it, and in their mastery of its contrasting climates, seasons and resources. Geoffrey Blainey is Professor of Economic History at the University of Melbourne and is one of Australia's most distinguished economic and social historians. Co-winner of the Barbara Ramsden Award for Literature, 1976. Highly Commended by the National Book Council, 1976. 'a learned and ingenious plea for greater respect and knowledge ‘of the Aboriginal people'. Tanning pages.
