Book News Annotation:

The authors are both scholars of the subject, and their efforts, combined with those of the photo and map editors at Andromeda Oxford Ltd., Oxfordshire, England, have produced this reference. Arrangement is in sections on geographical background, the great migrations, and post-European contact. Virtually every page displays some combination of maps, historical and contemporary photos, and reproductions of artwork. Special features focus on Aboriginal art, body adornment in Papua New Guinea, Gauguin, the Maori meeting house, and the forging of the Gallipoli legend. A glossary explains such terms as digger, and waddi; the bibliography is subject classified; and a gazetteer is included.
