The Pearl Frontier
Indonesian Labor And Indigenous Encounters In Australia'S Northern Trading Network
de Julia Martinez e Adrian Vickers
Sobre o livro
Remarkable for its meticulous archival research and moving life stories, The Pearl Frontier offers a new way of imagining Australian historical connections with Indonesia. This compelling view from below of maritime mobility demonstrates how, in the colonial quest for the valuable pearl-shell, Australians came to rely on the skill and labour of Indonesian islanders.
