Excerpt from The Native Tribes of South-East Australia I have endeavoured to show on the maps which accompany this work the range of the several class organisa tions, and the locality in each state, of each tribe referred to. But the reader will kindly bear in mind the great difficulty which always presents itself, not only in defining the true boundaries of any tribal country, but also, in many cases, of giving the true and comprehensive name of the tribe. A member of a clan will probably give its name, and only on closer inquiry will give the name of the tribe of which that clan is a part. It is still more difficult to ascertain the name of what I have termed a nation, that is, of a group which includes two or more kindred tribes.

Excerpt from On Some Antiquities in the Neighbourhood of Dunecht House Aberdeenshire It was known to the archaeologist that there were ogam inscriptions in the district, two Of them being among the most important in Caledonia; and that within an easy motor drive there was a minuscule inscription of six lines Of which no satisfactory explanation had been given. This inscription they had visited in a previous year. Further, the quick eye Of the hostess of Dunecht had caught sight of some curious sculptures on a stone by the road-side on the way to the minus cule inscription; and other like stones in the neighbourhood had been shewn in Stuart's two volumes of Sculptural Stones of Scotland. The suggestion was then made that for the sake of visitors at Dunecht a sort Of guide book should be prepared, giving some simple description of the several Objects and their meaning and uses.

Excerpt from An Australian Language: As Spoken by the Awabakal, the People of Awaba, or Lake Macquarie This volume is issued by the Government of New South Wales, as a record of the language of native tribes that are rapidly disappearing from the coasts of Eastern Australia. Presentation copies will be sent to the chief learned societies at home and abroad. The indigenes of the Sydney district are gone long ago, and some of the inland tribes are represented now only by a few families of wanderers. In all New South Wales, there are only five thousand full-blood blacks; only four or five hundred in Victoria; and in Tasmania the native race became extinct m1S 76. They have decayed and are decaying in spite of the fostering care of our Colonial Governments. A considerable portion of this volume consists of Mr. Threlkeld's acquisitions in the dialect which I have called the Awabakal, from Awaba, the native name for Lake Macquarie - his sphere of labour. But we have now come to know that this dialect was essentially the same as that spoken by the sub-tribes occupying the land where Sydney now stands, and that they all formed parts of one great tribe, the Kuriggai. In an Appendix I have collected several Grammars and Vocabularies as a contribution to a comparative knowledge of the dialects. The map and other illustrations are new, and were prepared for this work. The Gospel by St. Luke herein is now of no practical value, except to a linguist; but it is unique, and it shows the structural system of the language.

Honourable Intentions? compares the significance and strategic use of ‘honour’ in two colonial societies, the Cape Colony and the early British settlements in Australia, between 1750 and 1850. The mobile populations of emigrants and sojourners, sailors and soldiers, merchants and traders, slaves and convicts who surged into and through these regions are not usually associated with ideas of honour. But in both societies, competing and contradictory notions of honour proved integral to the ways in which colonisers and colonised, free and unfree, defended their status and insisted on their right to be treated with respect. During these times of flux, concepts of honour and status were radically reconstructed. Each of the thirteen chapters considers honour in a particular sphere - legal, political, religious or personal - and in different contexts determined by the distinctive and changing matrix of race, gender and class, as well as the distinctions of free and unfree status in each colony. Early chapters in the volume show how and why the political, ideological and moral stakes of the concept of honour were particularly important in colonial societies; later chapters look more closely at the social behaviour and the purchase of honour among specific groups. Collectively, the chapters show that there was no clear distinction between political and social life, and that honour crossed between the public and private spheres. This exciting new collection brings together new and established historians of Australia and South Africa to highlight thought-provoking parallels and contrasts between the Cape and Australian colonies that will be of interest to all scholars of colonial societies and the concept of honour.

Excerpt from Report on the Meteorology of Kerguelen Island From Observations taken during the Government Transit of Venus Expedition of 1874. The island of Kerguelen is situated in the central portion of the South Indian Ocean, about midway between South Africa and Australia, and a few hundred miles south of the track of the Australian clippers that round the Cape of Good Hope. Its latitude and longitude are approximately 50 S. And 70 E. Of Greenwich, and its extent 90 miles from E. To W. And 45 from N. To S. It has never been permanently inhabited but it was formerly a favourite resort of those engaged in the seal fishery, and it is still frequented by a few American sealers, who employ three schooners and a small barque for the collection of skins and for their transmission to the United States. The general aspect of the country is dreary in the extreme, and it has hence received the uninviting name of the Island of Desolation. Not a tree or large shrub is to be seen anywhere, and all that meets the eye in every direction is rock and lake and bog. Near the East coast of the island the hills are mostly flat - topped basaltic elevations, rising rather abruptly to no great height, whilst in the South-east sharp mountain peaks form a marked feature in the landscape. The freshwater lakes are numerous, and the whole country, at least near the eastern extremity, is intersected by an endless succession of inlets, or arms of the sea, which stretch sometimes fully 12 miles inland. The thick fogs and high winds of the entire region in which Kerguelen is situated are proverbial, and h.m.s. Volage and Supply, which conveyed the astronomers to their desolate station, experienced the full force of the violent storms and enormous waves, which follow each other in rapid succession. We were almost in sight of the island on October 6th, but dared not approach nearer on account of the violence of the wind and the thickness of the mist. After two days of suspense and of great suffering the wind abated, and we steered for the entrance to Royal Sound, situated at the extreme Eastern end of the island.

Description :


This classic four-volume series-from a pioneering ethnographer, first published in 1910-remains a foundational work of comparative mythology and religion for scholars and armchair anthropologists alike. Exploring the interconnections between myth and ritual in how and whom we may marry-as group marriage gave way to individual marriage-questions about religion and social structure became intertwined. In any case, this is a fascinating look at the social underpinnings common to all peoples around the globe. Volume I features a reprint of Frazer's groundbreaking 1887 work Totemism-covering the religious side of totemism; individual totems; sex totems; and more-as well as additional hard-to-find essays by the author. Then begins Frazer's ethnographic survey of totemism, here covering totemism in Australia. Scottish anthropologist SIR JAMES GEORGE FRAZER (1854-1941) also wrote the classic The Golden Bough (1890), Man, God, and Immortality (1927), and Creation and Evolution in Primitive Cosmogonies (1935).

Description :


Science, Sexuality, and Race in the United States and Australia, 1780–1940, Revised Edition is a sociohistorical tour de force that examines the entwined formation of racial theory and sexual constructs within settler colonialism in the United States and Australia from the Age of Revolution to the Great Depression. Gregory D. Smithers historicizes the dissemination and application of scientific and social-scientific ideas within the process of nation building in two countries with large Indigenous populations and shows how intellectual constructs of race and sexuality were mobilized to subdue Aboriginal peoples. Building on the comparative settler-colonial and imperial histories that appeared after the book’s original publication, this completely revised edition includes two new chapters. In this singular contribution to the study of transnational and comparative settler colonialism, Smithers expands on recent scholarship to illuminate both the subject of the scientific study of race and sexuality and the national and interrelated histories of the United States and Australia.

The impact of colonial dispossession and the subsequent social and political ramifications place a unique burden on governments having to establish equitable means of addressing previous injustices. A Common Hunger considers the efforts by both of these countries to reconcile the damage left by colonial oppression, in part, looking back with a critical eye, but also pointing the way toward a solution that will satisfy the common need for human dignity.

Foundations of Biogeography provides facsimile reprints of seventy-two works that have proven fundamental to the development of the field. From classics by Georges-Louis LeClerc Compte de Buffon, Alexander von Humboldt, and Charles Darwin to equally seminal contributions by Ernst Mayr, Robert MacArthur, and E. O. Wilson, these papers and book excerpts not only reveal biogeography's historical roots but also trace its theoretical and empirical development. Selected and introduced by leading biogeographers, the articles cover a wide variety of taxonomic groups, habitat types, and geographic regions. Foundations of Biogeography will be an ideal introduction to the field for beginning students and an essential reference for established scholars of biogeography, ecology, and evolution. List of Contributors John C. Briggs, James H. Brown, Vicki A. Funk, Paul S. Giller, Nicholas J. Gotelli, Lawrence R. Heaney, Robert Hengeveld, Christopher J. Humphries, Mark V. Lomolino, Alan A.
