About the Author

Miranda Johnson, University of SydneyMiranda Johnson is a lecturer in history at the University of Sydney.


One of the most important contributions of Miranda Johnson's The Land Is Our History: Indigeneity, Law, and the Settler State is to invigorate the value of 'comparative history.' ... Johnson's organized study and careful comparisons of similar historical phenomena in specific temporal and geographical spaces identifies significant historical contingencies, similarities, and differences. We discover what is distinctive about these particular series of related historical developments. The book is no less a documentation of the extraordinary achievements of those who struggled against intractable governments, courts, and crude contours of racism and misrecognition to push for redress and recognition of an ongoing dispossession. The book is a major achievement as a detailed study and also a source of reflection on earlier struggles. * Barry Morris, American Historical Review *
