edward cavanagh reviews belich


From borderlands 8, 2 (2009):

James Belich has produced the most rich and comprehensive comparative history of white settler colonialism – if only the settler side of it – since the transnational turn of the 1990s. Above all else, this is economic history, and that of settlers and not natives. His thesis is composed with beautiful simplicity, and stands tangential, but not adjacent, to the existing scholarship on settler colonialism.
