Black Robinson: Protector of Aborigines

Vivienne Rae-Ellis
Controversial study of George ('Black') Robinson, first Chief Protector of Aborigines in Australia.
A greedy, vain and unscrupulous man bent on self-aggrandisment.

This controversial study of George ('Black') Robinson, first Chief Protector of Aborigines in Australia, reveals a man long held to be the worthy civilizer and Christianizer of Tasmanian Aborigines to have been a monster of deceit and a betrayer of those it was his role to protect-a man who made perhaps the most repellent contribution of all to what was to become the decimation of Tasmania's Aborigines.
