Samenvatting

Hunters and Collectors is about historical consciousness and environmental sensibilities in European Australia from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. It is in part a collective biography of the amateur scientists and humanists who have shaped the Australian historical imagination. Griffiths illuminates the way these avid collectors and discussants of the Australian land and its indigenous inhabitants have contributed a sense of national identity. He also shows how their activities feed into the political and environmental debates of the 1990s.

Recensie(s)

Review of the hardback: '... Griffiths breaks some fascinating ground in this thought provoking and engaging study of private Australian collectors ...' The Australian Review of the hardback: '... is a challenging, imaginative study of the politics and processes that continue to shape our history. While aimed at a specialist audience, the writing is lucid enough to appeal to the general reader'. The Bulletin ...this is a model of a book in the way the author skillfully blends meticulous research, detailed description, encompassing ideas, and sophisticated insight. The book also has excellent and truly helpful illustrations. Miriam Kahn, Pacific Affairs
