Abstract:

The publication of this book in 1981 profoundly changed the way in which we understand the history of relations between Indigenous Australians and European settlers. It has since become a classic of Australian history. Drawing from documentary and oral evidence, the book describes in meticulous and compelling detail the ways in which Aboriginal Australians responded to the arrival of Europeans. Henry Reynolds' argument that the Aboriginal people resisted fiercely was highly original when it was first published and is no less challenging today.
