    One thought on “Triumph of the Nomads: A History of Aboriginal Australia”

    1. They went about as far as they could goAlmost any other book on Australia's Aborigines that you can find will be an anthropological description of Aboriginal life as seen in its declining years or modern Aboriginal problems in the 20th century. Some may record the awful history of injustice, the fatal impact of alcohol and white police---maybe even the deliberate policy of breaking up cultures and families that existed until recent times. There are a lot of books out there and I certainly am not [...]

    2. This book was recommended to me by a bookstore employee in Perth. I couldn't understand how it could possibly be considered that the Aborigines triumphed in Australia since they are very marginalized in their society, with high rates of unemployment and alcoholism, etc.(sound familiar?). But the premise of the book is that the Aborigines were in Australia for *at least* 35,00 years before the Europeans arrived, and some estimates say it may be as much as 60,000 years. In that regard, they did tr [...]

    3. I found this book quite good but with a significant blindspot: there is no mention at all of the word, or concept, Dreamtime (or Dreaming). While Blainey frames this as an economic history of pre-contact Australia, leaving out such a significant cultural aspect cannot but limit it. Imagine an economic history of Europe without talking about Catholicism, or America without Protestantism. That said, it is still worth a read and is - typically for Blainey - iconoclastic.

    4. Great book if you want to know more about the history of Australia. Blainey writes about the succes of the Aboriginals to survive. stukgelezen/stukgelezen/

    5. Heavy-going, somewhat interesting. Can't read more than a few pages at a time. I expect it will take most of 2010 to finish it.
