Quarto, xii, 250 pages with 29 figures, 18 maps and 6 plates plus a large folding map in an endpocket ('Aboriginal Language Distribution in the Northern Territory, as at December 1972': 865 x 600 mm). Pictorial card covers scuffed and marked; spine a little sunned; a very good copy. With the ownership signature of Reverend Bill Edwards, further inscribed 'Amata', and with his occasional emphases. The book contains, in rewritten form, eleven of the twelve papers presented at a symposium, 'Ecology, Spatial Organisation and Process in Aboriginal Australia' held at the ANU in October 1973. The contributors are Tindale, Flood, Peterson, Mulvaney, Birdsell, Yengoyan, Berndt, Maddock, Turner, Rose, Dixon and Milliken. The symposium was held to commemorate thirty-six years of collaboration between Norman Tindale and Joseph Birdsell. 'Their work has stimulated research and stirred continuing controversy . . . Central to the controversy, and to their work, has been the existence and nature of the Australian tribe . . . In an important sense the controversy arises directly out of Tindale's original tribal map, published in 1940'.
