Equal Subjects, Unequal Rights: Indigenous People in British Settler Colonies, 1830-1910

Julie Evans, Patricia Grimshaw, and David Phillips


This book focuses on the ways in which the British settler colonies of Australia, Canada, New Zealand and South Africa treated indigenous peoples in relation to political rights, commencing with the imperial policies of the 1830s and ending with the national political settlements in place by 1910. Drawing on a wide range of sources, its comparative approach provides an insight into the historical foundations of present-day controversies in these settler societies.

Keywords: British settler colonies, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, indigenous peoples, political rights, imperial policies, national political settlements, settler societies
