Frontier history revisited : colonial Queensland and the 'history war'

Orsted-Jensen, Robert2011
Books, Manuscripts
"'Frontier history revisited' allows its reader an opportunity to examine and compare the most prominent statements made during the skirmish known as 'The history war', with a chronological listing of key primary sources to colonial Queensland's history. It then goes on to examine political and other forms of dissent to her frontier indigenous policies and the actual role, presence and influence of missionaries and protectors. Finally it presents and debates anew the evidence of white and black victims to frontier violence in north-eastern Australia, for the first time providing a full listing of all recorded Europeans and assistants who fell victim during the nineteenth century to this violence within the territory of the present day state of Queensland."--Back cover.

"... or why the latest chapter in the Australian 'history wars' was never more than badly-equipped political spin-doctoring and a very post-modern style of 'journalism'.".Includes bibliographical references (p. 259-270) and index.
