Summary
Published to accompany the first major UK exhibition on indigenous Australia, this groundbreaking new publication explores the profound impact and legacy of colonialism. The nature of collecting and the changing meaning of objects now in the collection of the British Museum are revealed through contributions from key experts and indigenous peoples and colonists were complex and nuanced, and contemporary Australian society is still dealing with this legacy, trying to transform or reconcile different worldviews
