Summary
Provides an examination of issues put forward by Keith Windschuttle in Fabrication of Aboriginal history; six issues raised - a) evidence provided for Fabrication's conclusions about the cause of Aboriginal deaths b) Windschuttle's claims about the causes of black-white violence c) ignorance or deceit? Fabrication's use of primary sources d) Fabrication and Aboriginal culture e) the 'Last Test': how probable is Fabrication? f) the Tasmanian tradition and Fabrication's case: how 'left' is orthodox?; cites several sources not referred to by Windschuttle; sets out argument in relation to many of Windschuttle's assertions; refers often to 'Whitewash'; asserts that Windschuttle deliberately omitted reference to accounts that conflict with what he believes; presents evidence that refutes many of Windschuttle's claims; states that 'The reason Windschuttle omitted ... obvious and essential primary material is not clear'
