Henry Reynolds' The Law of the Land was first published in 1987 and advanced a radical reassessment of the history of property ownership in Australia. Reynolds' work challenged the prevailing legal and historical orthodoxy under which it was assumed that as a consequence of colonisation, the Aboriginal peoples of Australia no longer enjoyed any enforceable rights to land arising from their traditional use and occupation. The author is a professor in history and politics at James Cook University whose other books include 'The Other Side of the Frontier'.
