The World of the First Australians

By Ronald M Berndt & Catherine H Berndt


The World of the First Australians is a classic in the field of Australian Aboriginal Studies.

As well as being a comprehensive reference book, of the many societies and cultures that have existed on the Australian continent, it discusses Aboriginal belief and practice in general terms. And concentrates on the way the aborigines lived before the Europeans came, such as social organisation, economic adaptation, relationship to land and resources, growing up and getting married, religious belief, myth and ritual, forms of sorcery and magic, law and order, oral literature and visual art.
