Brisbane: The Aboriginal Presence

Brisbane: The Aboriginal Presence has been reviewed and expanded to include some of Australia’s best-qualified historians and researchers in Aboriginal history. Many of these authors continue to campaign for more research into First Nations history and the Frontier Wars. This book comprises a foreword that examines recent research in Aboriginal studies and seven instead of six papers on race relations in the Brisbane region between 1824 and 1860. It covers the convict and early settlement periods until the Separation of Queensland from New South Wales in late 1859.
