Summary
  • "In the planned colony of South Australia, Aboriginal people were to be British subjects, held accountable for their actions by English law, but fully entitled to its protection. However, the dreams of London's reformers rapidly soured as British law struggled to protect the settlers' interests and failed to protect Aboriginal lives and birthrights." [From back cover]
  • Examines Supreme Court records of South Australia to describe the relationship between Aboriginal people and Anglo Australian law; Appendix lists case involving Aboriginal people 1836 to 1862
