North Melbourne Australian Scholarly Publishing 2010 1921509929 / 9781921509926 1st Edition Softcover 
Octavo Size. MINT - a NEW copy. Illustrated with Black and White Photographs. Includes Herbert Basedow's 'Knights of the Boomerang' and David Kaus's essay 'On the Photography of Herbert Basedow'. 324 pages "When in 1997 the Bringing Them Home Report about the forcible removal of part-Aboriginal children from their parents was published, many Australians felt stunned and ashamed. What was such a brutal policy of biological engineering meant to achieve, and who were the men behind it? One of them was Dr Herbert Basedow 1881–1933 from Adelaide, a geologist, medical doctor, M.P., and anthropologist. He unwittingly provided the administrators of the White Australia policy with a bloodless method of 'breeding out the colour', of biologically absorbing Aborigines into the white-settler society. His studies in Germany had convinced him that Aborigines were the racial ancestors of Europeans, that they were black Caucasians, and therefore Aboriginal features disappeared for good after three or four generations of intermarriage with Europeans. Dr Basedow was a scientist and he never intended to harm countless Aboriginal families. On the contrary, he dedicated much of his short life to extending their future. But the removal of children did not stop in 1953 when the structure of DNA was discovered and rendered Basedow's findings of 1910 untenable. It only ended with the White Australia policy itself."
