Series: Australian Quarterly Essay, Issue 1
Binding: Paperback
Year Published: 2001
In the first Australian Quarterly Essay Robert Manne attacks the right-wing campaign against the Bringing Them Home report that revealed how thousands of Aborigines had been taken from their parents. What was the role of Paddy McGuinness as editor of Quadrant? How reliable was the evidence that led newspaper columnists from Piers Akerman in the Sydney Telegraph to Andrew Bolt in the Melbourne Herald-Sun to deny the gravity of the injustice done?

In a powerful indictment of past government policies towards the Aborigines, Robert Manne has written a brilliant polemical essay which doubles as a succinct history of how the Aborigines were mistreated and an exposure of the ignorance of those who want to deny that history.

The Australian Quarterly Essay is a new journal which will present significant contributions to the general debate. Each issue will contain a single essay written at a length of at least 20,000 words. It will present the widest range of political, intellectual and cultural opinion.
