Summary
"The new world created through Anglophone emigration in the nineteenth century has been much studied. But there have been few accounts of what this world meant for Indigenous communities facing invasion by those emigrants. While settlers in the British Empire and the USA have been seen as participants in newly globalized networks, the Indigenous peoples upon whose lands they settled tend to be seen as rooted, localized, and peripheral to the story of imperial and national expansion. This book weaves through trans-imperial, Indigenous, local and family histories, showing that Indigenous communities tenaciously held land in the midst of dispossession, whilst becoming interconnected through their struggles to do so. Moving between Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa and the USA, it highlights the enduring associations between race, place and behavior in settler societies from Indigenous perspectives"--
