Connors, Libby (2012) Women, children and violence in aboriginal law: some perspectives from the southeast Queensland frontier. In: Past law, present histories. Australia and New Zealand School of Government . ANU E Press, Canberra, Australia, pp. 125-136. ISBN 9781922144027


Aboriginal-centred history presents presents formidable methodological problems, as Aboriginal and history critics have highlighted. This chapter uses some of the evidence from Moreton Bay to respond to some of the more complex and controversial aspects of traditional law that have surfaced in the Sydney histories, regarding the level of violence directed at wives and children.
