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.
