This book presents a concept of a pre-European Aboriginal economy. It closely analyses the processes which allowed economic control of a country to pass, after more than 60,000 years in Aboriginal hands, into European hands within 60 years of settlement. Professor Butlin claims that it was not until 1850 that combined black and white production exceeded the 'value' of black production in 1788, prior to British colonisation. The book covers 60,000 years from the migration of Australia’s first peoples from South-east Asia to the arrival of European settlers - and the subsequent disintegration of traditional life and the decimation of the Aboriginal population. His research in prehistory, oceanography, climatology, demography, geomorphology and anthropology has produced a fascinating book for anyone wanting to learn about early Aboriginal history.

But that is actually a very small part of his story.

129. Ivison, Duncan (2002). Postcolonial Liberalism (1st ed). Cambridge: Cambridge University Press (CUP). 214 pp. Paperback trade, very good condition, tiny dent rear cover, minor edgewear. Presents a compelling account of the challenges to liberal political theory by claims to cultural and political autonomy and land rights made by indigenous peoples today. Written in Australia, and with a focus on Australian Aborigines. Public debate between indigenous and non-indigenous peoples has been often mired in mutual recrimination and misunderstanding. This experience is not unique to Australia. Attempts to present a larger picture within which to consider these questions, beyond the technicalities of legal doctrine and the bureaucratic imperatives of public policy. What is distinctive about this book is the middle way it charts between separatism, on the one hand, and assimilation, on the other. These two options present a false dichotomy as to what might constitute a genuinely postcolonial liberal society. ISBN: 0521527511. Our Book No: 30432. $30 AUD.
