9780522839548: Black Australians: A Survey of Native Policy in Western Australia, 1829-97

A study of Australian native policy, mainly confined to Western Australia; important for its treatment of the British background and its description of settler reactions. --- The book was accepted for publication by the Melbourne University Press in the early months of World War II but did not appear until 1942. By then the war news had worsened and consequently the edition was limited to five hundred copies and its publication attracted little notice. Nevertheless over the years inquiries about the book increased, therefore a new edition appeared in 1970. As a work of history the book had stood the test of time. The interpretation of the events and the conclusions drawn from them still seemed to be valid and relevant to the discussion of native welfare in Australia as they were when first presented. Contents: 1. Introduction: The Thesis Stated; 2. The Setting of the Study; 3. The Intention: Official Expression of Policy; 4. The Performance: A Survey of Native Administration in Western Australia; 5. Still Black, Though British: The Legal Status of the Native; 6. Public Opinion: Repugnance, Fear, Exasperation and Contempt; 7. Epilogue; Appendices: A. Sources, B. References
