Reviews

This book does not remedy injustice, but it recognises it. It offers Tongerlongeter, his people and his allies respect, recognition and regret. May it be one of many such books. - Bill Gammage Australia has recently discovered Indigenous defenders of country. They now include Tongerlongeter, recovered from a negligent posterity by Reynolds' and Clements' meticulous and imaginative research. Remarkable research and powerful writing. - Professor Peter Stanley, UNSW Canberra


Author Information

Henry Reynolds is one of Australia's most recognised historians. His pioneering work has changed the way we see the intertwining of black and white history in Australia. His books with NewSouth include The Other Side of the Frontier (reissue); What's Wrong with Anzac? (as co-author); Forgotten War, which won the Victorian Premier's Literary Prize; Unnecessary Wars; This Whispering in Our Hearts Revisited; and, most recently, Truth-telling: History, Sovereignty and the Uluru Statement. Nicholas Clements is a teacher of history, philosophy, and psychology. He is also an adjunct researcher at the University of Tasmania, where he completed his PhD on the island's frontier conflict. His 2014 book, The Black War: Fear, Sex and Resistance in Tasmania, explored the motivations and experiences of both Indigenous peoples and colonists during the war.
