Dark Emu puts forward an argument for a reconsideration of the hunter-gatherer tag for pre-colonial Aboriginal Australians. The evidence insists that Aboriginal people right across the continent were using domesticated plants, sowing, harvesting, irrigating, and storing, behaviours inconsistent with the hunter-gatherer tag. Gerritsen and Gammage in their latest books support this premise but Pascoe takes this further and challenges the hunter-gatherer tag as a convenient lie. Almost all the evidence in Dark Emu comes from the records and diaries of the Australian explorers, impeccable sources.… (mere)

Stunning attempt to revise every white colonial descendant's taken-for-granted assumptions about indigenous Australia. And probably, not before time. Whether you are persuaded or not, this book needs to be read. And considered. ( )

Excellent and accessible discussion of the evidence behind a non-nomadic lifestyle for the Aboriginal people prior to British colonisation. ( )

A rather important, worthwhile read for all Australians. "Dark Emu" is one of several recent books (another being the comprehensive "The Greatest Estate on Earth" - a superior and more objective read, if I'm honest) seeking to shatter the many misconceptions about the way Aboriginal Australians lived before their land was taken over by the white man.

"Arguing over whether the Aboriginal economy was a hunter-gatherer system or one of burgeoning agriculture is not the central issue. The crucial point is that we have never discussed it as a nation. The belief that Aboriginal people were 'mere' hunter gatherers has been used as a political tool to justify disposession."

Pascoe outlines the anthropological, geographical, and anecdotal evidence for Aboriginal farming, trapping, house-building, clothing, fire-burning, and other interesting practices. This book is not academic, in that it primarily lists a variety of examples and claims without citing many sources, but, as Pascoe notes, this is an area where there remains great prejudice and ignorance today. The information I was taught as factual when I was a child portrays a fairly simplistic view of the Aboriginal tribes, and it's truly fascinating to gain an insight into the rich culture that existed in the country long before the white man. Pascoe sees the best possible answers, of course, and his ideology can be frustrating when it replaces more even-keeled thought. But perhaps this is better seen as a work of passionate non-fiction rather than academia. Australia has a long way to go before equality is achieved, and recognition of this sort can only help. ( )

This is a great endeavor, the kind of book most Australians should try to read; even if you don't want to take all of the polemic to heart, it's good to know the facts that are presented.

On the other hand, holy mother of God is this a terrible book, in the sense that it is rambling, repetitive, and seemingly was never edited at all by anyone. Some paragraphs feel like they were thrown in at random, just because that paragraph had been written. Other paragraphs display exactly the kind of wanton stupidity that a book like this is meant to combat, except that the stupidity is about something else, and so is, I guess, not worth combating?

"The financial crash of 2008 and the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010 occurred because the Christian morality of most participants had been excluded from their business dealings. In the case of the oil spill, it highlighted the dominion that Christians believe they hold over the earth."

That's right: the oil spill was caused by the absence of Christian morality among oil barons, as well as the presence of Christian morality among oil barons. Disappointing, because a good version of this would be so good. ( )

After my book on the colonial frontier battles, "Convincing Ground", was published in Australia in 2007, I was inundated with more than 200 letters and emails--many of them from fourth-generation farmers and Aboriginal people.

There is a photograph of early explorer and pastoralist Angus McMillan sitting with two Aboriginal men. The image has always disturbed me. [221]
Mike Morwood, the archaelogist credited with the discovery of the 'Hobbit' skeletons on Flores in Indonesia, is conducting intensive research on the paintings. He believes the paintings to be 40,000 to 45,000 years old..." [158]
This stain is deep in our chalk, and until we can accept what the explorers saw as part of the national story, our debate about the national origins, character, and attributes is hobbled by ignorance. [104]
On seeing houses built to accommodate forty people in groups of fifty or more, both explorers [Mitchell and Sturt] resort to words such as 'huts' or 'hovels' to describe buildings that in rural Ireland would have been called croft houses. [104]
