Book Description and Condition

Book description and condition

The author provides a compelling account of policing in the Kimberley from 182, when police were established in the district, until 1905 when Dr. Walter Roth's controversial Royal Commission into the treatment of Aboriginal people were released. Owen's achievement is to take elements of the pre-

existing historiography and test them against a rigorous archival investigation. In doing so a fuller understanding of the complex social, economic and political changes occurring in Western Australia during the period are exposed. 234 x154mm., pp. xv, 632, black & white plates, notes. bibliography, index. Trade paperback, stiff pictorial card covers. NEW.
