The publication of The Other Side of the Frontier—Aboriginal Resistance to the European Invasion of Australia in 1981 profoundly changed the way in which we understand the history of relations between Aboriginal Australians and European settlers.
It has since become a classic of Australian history. Drawing from documentary and oral evidence, the book describes in meticulous and compelling detail the ways in which Aborigines responded to the arrival of Europeans.
Henry Reynolds’ argument that the Aborigines resisted fiercely was highly original when it was first published and is no less challenging today.
