In the creation of a new society there are always winners and losers. So it was with Australia as it grew through invasion, settlement and development from a colonial outpost to an affluent industrial society. This book tells the history of Australia from the perspective of those who were dispossessed, the original Australians. Australian history is often recounted as a saga of progress by a developing white nation towards a bigger and better target; this text examines this process from the opposite angle. It reveals what White Australia lost by its onslaught on Aboriginal culture and how Aborigines, in different ways, have attempted to maintain their distinctive identity in the face of hostility, ignorance and exploitation.

In the creation of a new society, there are always winners and losers. So it was with Australia as it grew through invasion, settlement and development from a colonial outpost to an affluent industrial society. This books tells the history of Australia from the standpoint of those who were dispossessed, the original Australians. Surveying two centuries of Aboriginal-European encounters, it reveals what white Australia lost through unremitting colonial invasion and tells the story of Aboriginal survival through resistance and accommodation. It traces the Aboriginal journey from the margins of colonial society to a more central place in modern Australia. ABORIGINAL AUSTRALIANS first appeared in 1982 and has won a wide readership. This new enlarged edition brings the story up to the mid-1990s. It remains the only concise and up-to-date survey of Aboriginal history since 1788. Richard Broome teaches history at La Trobe University and is the author of four books and many articles on Australian history. He is currently working on a history of Aboriginal people in Victoria.
