Telling the Truth about Aboriginal History

By Bain Attwood | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

I wish to thank the many people who have helped me with this book. Several colleagues and friends commented on the first draft, and I am grateful to them for their critical comments and suggestions: Alan Atkinson, Dipesh Chakrabarty, Graeme Davison, Tom Griffiths, Paula Hamilton, John Hirst, Mark McKenna, Peter Read, Liz Reed, Bill Schwarz and Elizabeth Weiss. Stephen Foster, Claudia Haake, Paula Hamilton, Mark McKenna, Shanti Narayanasamy and Liz Reed read either some or all of the revised manuscript and provided a good deal of useful advice. I am especially indebted to Dipesh Chakrabarty, Eleanor Hancock, Mark McKenna and Liz Reed for their advice, and my parents for their counsel and encouragement. In writing this book, I have also learned much from other scholars who have considered the historical and historiographical matters it discusses. I also want to acknowledge the research work of Marina Bollinger and Meighen Katz, the assistance of Jane Cadzow and Susan Tonkin, the help provided by archivists at the Archives Office of Tasmania and the National Archives of Australia, and librarians at the National Library of Australia, and the financial assistance of the School of Historical Studies, Monash University.

At Allen & Unwin Elizabeth Weiss was a superlative publisher from beginning to end, while Angela Handley and Sue Jarvis were fine editors. I am thankful for the advice a defamation lawyer engaged by Allen & Unwin gave on an earlier version of this book. My thanks to Peter Nicholson and Geoff Pryor for allowing me to reproduce their cartoons, and to Fairfax and News Limited for permission to reproduce the other illustrations.
