Booktopia First Nations promotion

Summary

A greedy, vain and unscrupulous man bent on self-aggrandisment—this controversial study of George ('Black') Robinson, first Chief Protector of Aborigines in Australia, reveals a man long held to be the worthy civiliser and Christianiser of Tasmanian Aboriginal people to have been a monster of deceit and a betrayer of those it was his role to protect a man who made perhaps the most repellent contribution of all to what was to become the decimation of Tasmania's nations.
