9780855755492: Convincing Ground: Learning to Fall in Love with Your Country

A wide-ranging, personal and powerful work that resonates with historical and contemporary Australian debates about identity, dispossession, memory, and community. Ranging across the national contemporary political stage, this book critiques the great Australian silence when it comes to dealing respectfully with the construction of the nation’s Indigenous past.

Review:

"In prose of lyrical clarity and uncompromising honesty, Bruce Pascoe invites readers to be awakened, enthralled by fresh and breath-taking truths about the story of Australia. Convincing Ground is unique.  —Carmel Bird

"The author’s greatest strength is his construction of a narrative comparing contemporary Australian politics, culture and identity with the formative years of contact histories."  —Steve Kinnane

"...This beautifully written book, with its fierce determination to recognise and right the wrongs of history, is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand where Aboriginal people are coming from."  —Paul Burns, Reviews in Australian Studies, Vol 2, No 7, 2007
