Acknowledgments

Thanks are due to many institutions and individuals that have been of real assistance in the research and preparation leading up to this book. The fieldwork was carried out on a grant from the Social Science Research Council(U.S.A), with additional funds for the Land- Rover from the Australian Institute of Aboriginal studies (Canberra) and funds for collecting artifacts supplied by the American Museum of Natural History.

Special thanks are owed to the following persons for their many courtesies and material assistance to this research: Dr. Ronald M. Berndt, Dr. Catherine H. Berndt, and Mrs. Thyra Robertson of the Department of Anthropology, University of Western Australia; Frank Gare, Glen Cornish, David Kininmonth, Lloyd Fletcher, and Stan Bridgeman of the Western Australian Department of Native Welfare; Ron Roberts and Robert Verburgt of the Weapons Research Establishment (Woomera); Robert Hewitt of the Western Mining Corporation, Ltd.; Samuel Mollenhauer, Richard Hawthorne, Amy Glass, Dorothy Hackett, and the Nursing Sisters at the Warburton Ranges Mission; Dr. W. D. L. Ride, Ian Crawford, and Sara Meagher of the Western Australian Museum.

Before my wife and I set out for the desert we received useful advice from many individuals, in particular from Robert Tonkinson, Norman Tindale, Dr. Mervyn Meggitt, Harry Butler, and Mark de Graaf. I am grateful to Dr. Margaret Mead, Dr. Harry L. Shapiro, and Hobart Van Deusen for reading and criticizing the manuscript; to Nicholas Amorosi for his painstaking art work; to the American Museum of Natural History for the assistance rendered by its photographic, library, and other facilities; and to the magazines Natural History, Nature and Science, and Medical Opinion and Review for allowing me to use in the book certain photographs which had first appeared in these publications.
