Controversially, the blurb says, in part - "The most exhaustive analysis yet undertaken of relations between settlers and Aborigines from the time the British founded the colony in 1803. After re-examining all the evidence, Keith Windschuttle concludes that despite its infamous reputation, Van Diemen's Land was host to nothing that resembled genocide or any attempt at it. Nor did the limited conflict that occurred ever deserve the name 'warfare'. The extensive and fully documented statistics produced in this book demonstrate that, in the entire history of Europe's colonization of the Americas and the Pacific, Van Diemen's Land was probably the site where the least indigenous blood of all was deliberately shed."
