Summary

Analysis of the attitudes and behaviour of settlers in reaction to Aborigines whose land they settled; concentrates on the themes of conflict, ideology and land ownership from first settlement to early 20th century; defines the nature of conflict through examination of letters, newspaper reports, parliamentary and other papers of the times; examines philosophical bases of 19th century philanthropic attitudes toward Aborigines, European typification of them as savages; compares 19th century understanding of native title in Australia with other common-law countries; examines the 19th century controversy as to whether or not Aborigines retained rights to land.
