Abstract: Anyone who heard Inga Clendinnen’s 1999 Boyer Lectures or who has listened to her in any other way will hear her voice clearly in this book: contemplative, reflective, warm, gently paced. "Dancing with Strangers" seems to have been written as if it were meant to be read aloud. It reaches out to its listeners, drawing them within the world of the settlement at Port Jackson during its first dozen years,from 1778 to 1800. The two leading figures are Governor Arthur Phillip (who departed in 1792) and Bennelong.
