Description

The work of Spencer and Gillen, particularly The Native Tribes of Central Australia (1899), has been enormously influential for more than 100 years. Their detailed descriptions of Aboriginal life were the first major template for Australia's understanding of Aboriginality. Spencer's beautiful photographs, in particular, excited the imaginations of both academic anthropologists and the general public. This is a new, expanded edition of The Photographs of Baldwin Spencer, with a new introduction by John Morton reflecting the considerable advances in knowledge and thinking about Aboriginality since 1982.show more
