dc.description.abstractKeith Windschuttle seeks to undermine a 'mindset among historians of Tasmania that started in Henry Melville's "History of Van Diemen's Land" (1835) and continues in Henry Reynolds's "An Indelible Stain"(2001). Mindsets, or 'interpretive frameworks', sensitise historians to 'evidence' that fits their 'assumptions'. While 'often very productively' applied, Windschuttle concedes, some mindsets have 'overt political objectives'. Recent authors of the orthodox view of Tasmania's colonisation, such as Reynolds and Lyndall Ryan, 'seek to justify "land rights" and the transfer of large tracts of land to the descendants' of Aborigines.en
