Three themes run through this book: widespread violence on the frontier, the pervasive impact of racism on colonial society, and the absolute importance of land ownership.
Considered together, they provide a picture of the Australian frontier experience as it was revealed in the relations between a new white society and the Aboriginal people.
The forces present at the birth of a new society leave a legacy: the past is still alive. This book is about the present as well as about our colonial heritage.
