Reviews

."..This beautifully written book, with its fierce determination to recognise and right the wrongs of history, is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand where Aboriginal people are coming from." --Paul Burns, "Reviews in Australian Studies", Vol 2, No 7, 2007
"In prose of lyrical clarity and uncompromising honesty, Bruce Pascoe invites readers to be awakened, enthralled by fresh and breath-taking truths about the story of Australia. "Convincing Ground "is unique. --"Carmel Bird"
"The author's greatest strength is his construction of a narrative comparing contemporary Australian politics, culture and identity with the formative years of contact histories." --Steve Kinnane
