Summary
"This book examines the emotional engagements of both Indigenous and non-Indigenous people with Indigenous history. The Indigenous and non-Indigenous contributors examine how the past lives on in the present, as myth, memory and history. Each chapter throws a fresh light on an aspect of history-making by or about Indigenous people, such as the extent of massacres on the frontier, the myth of Aboriginal male idleness, the controversy over Flynn of the inland, the meaning of the Referendum of 1967, and the policy and practice of Indigenous child removal" (back cover)
