  1. This sounds like one I would like, I reckon, Lisa, though I don’t recollect having heard of him. I did a course in Australian Aboriginal anthropology but that was a few decades ago so maybe he was mentioned. Elkin and CD Rowley were our bibles.

    • I’m not even going to think about getting this one till I’ve read that whopper about Manning Clark from last year!
