Kamilaroi and Kurnai

A 'landmark in Australian anthropology' when it first appeared in 1880, this is the first major analysis of Aboriginal social structure, adopting a model today termed 'social Darwinist'. While this theory is now rejected, it exerted tremendous influence on European attitudes for decades.

Kamilaroi and Kurnai is of particular relevance to Koories of Kurnai descent and to all students of Aboriginal anthropology and history.
