About this Item

Cover wear, spine cracking, good. 16 b/w illus. "The passage from pastoralism to agriculture is inevitable" summarizes the framework of this book. Manifest Destiny lays behind his assertion that "The only real right is that of superiority of race and greater inherent capability on the part of the whites. Thus, in "the newly descovered wilds of NSW", he describes the 3 classes of "inhabitants", all English. An excellent base document for studying the views and attitudes that lead to the appropriation of the Aboriginals' lands and transformation of the indigenous landscape to that of the European pastoralist vision. *** 345pp. > Language: English | > Size: 12mo | > Media/Binding: Soft cover |.
