Empire and indigeneity : histories and legacies

documentary heritage
  • Description

    "Indigeneity is inseparable from Empire and the way empire responds to the indigenous presence is a key historical factor in shaping the flow of imperial history. This book is about the consequences of the encounter in the early nineteenth century between the British imperial presence and the First Peoples of what were to become Australia and New Zealand.

    However, the shape of social relations between indigenous peoples and the forces of empire does not remain constant over time. The book tracks how the creation of empire in this part of the world possessed long-lasting legacies both for the settler colonies that emerged and for the wider history of British imperial culture"--Back cover.
