Overview

This book - now in paperback - is an overview of Australian Aboriginal history, from creation stories involving the Dreaming through to Aboriginal cultural and political activity in the 21st century. Alphabetically arranged entries include biographies, historical events, pioneering work by anthropologists, historical controversies, literature, sport, and a number of social issues. The book covers all regions of Australia and the Torres Strait Islands. It includes photographs, maps, population tables, a chronology, and bibliography. This paperback edition has been revised and updated since the successful 2008 edition.
