Summary "Neither Amity nor Kindness skillfully chronicles government policies affecting Aboriginal people of New South Wales from the arrival of the First Fleet in 1788 until the abolition of the Aborigines Welfare Board in 1969. While details of these policies can be found in many books on Aboriginal history, this account presents a flowing narrative that connects all of them in one readable volume."--Back cover

Notes "This book has references to deceased Aboriginal people, their words, names and sometimes their photographs. Their words are already in the public domain and permission has been obtained to use the photographs. In Aboriginal communities it is customary not to mention the name of, or reproduce images of, the recently deceased. Care and discretion therefore should be taken in using this book."--t.p. verso
