Book Description McPhee Gribble & Penguin Sydney 1988, 1988. 21.0 x 14.0cms, 256pp, very good paperback & cover This Bicentenary Project, 'aims to recapture and review the experiences of those who were neglected in conventional histories - Aboriginal people, women, members of ethnic or racial minorities and the working class in general. The intention is not merely to compensate for past neglect, but to assert that we can only understand Australian history by analysing the lives of the oppressed. This history is critical not celebratory. It rejects myths of national progress and unity. It starts from a recognition that Australian settler society was built on invasion and dispossession.[and that] inequality is a dominant theme in this history.[but that] people are not powerless victims.' The essays are: White man came & took everything; Aborigines, Europeans & environment; we are hungry for our land; carving up the country; brutalized, beggared & bought; peopling the place again; 20th century immigrants; the apron-strings of Empire; workers, capital & the protection racket, ruling the region; used & abused - the Melanesian labour trade; keeping Australia clean white; Australians at war.
