    DescriptionA powerful history of race relations in Australia since colonisation, this fully updated edition remains the only concise survey of Aboriginal history since 1788. It includes dedicated mailing and e-mail campaign to targeted history related media & organizations. In the creation of any new society, there are winners and losers. So it was with Australia as it grew from a colonial outpost to an affluent society. Richard Broome tells the history of Australia from the standpoint of the original Australians - those who lost most in the early colonial era. Surveying two centuries of Aboriginal/European encounters, he shows how white settlers steadily supplanted the original inhabitants, from the shining coasts to inland deserts, by sheer force of numbers, disease, technology and, of course, violence. He also tells the story of Aboriginal survival and traces the continuing struggle to move from the margins of a settler society to a more central place in modern Australia. Since its first edition in 1982, Broome's "Aboriginal Australians" has won acclaim as the classic account of race relations in Australia. This fully rewritten fourth edition continues the story, covering the uneven implementation of native title, the plight of remote Aboriginal communities, the 'Intervention' and the landmark apology to the 'stolen generations' and more.
