Frontier, Race, Nation — Henry Reynolds and Australian History

Edited by Bain Attwood and Tom Griffiths

It is often said that Henry Reynolds has altered Australian history, and this book illuminates the extraordinary significance of his personal and public roles as historian, writer and commentator. By expanding and challenging Reynolds’ contribution, the authors of each chapter broaden our understanding of the legacy of this man from a national and international perspective. They discuss issues surrounding frontier settlement, land rights, sovereignty and race. In thinking about the influence, both academic and popular, of a scholar of Reynolds’ stature, we find ourselves exploring the character of the discipline of history itself, and of its role in our public culture.
