Key concepts in the humanities and social sciences

Sarah Midford, Sara James, Garrie Hutchinson

2018

This etextbook is a collection of foundational concepts in the humanities and social sciences and will be useful to any reader who wants to better understand key terms and concepts relevant to human cultures and their history.

The reader should note, however, that the terms included in the book have originated from the particular needs of the core Bachelor of Arts subjects at La Trobe University, Rethinking Our Humanity and Ideas that Shook the World, which focus on concepts as they apply to contemporary Australian culture.

French Revolution

Adrian Jones with William Murray, Ross Smith, Alice Garner and Ian Coller

2018

French Revolution uses primary sources, written and visual, to make the past really come alive. Rather than just summarise and simplify historical events, the authors focus on the use of primary sources to help readers to engage with and care about people of the past, making them and their lost world seem more real. This etextbook brings together different perspectives that guide the reader to consider the chronologies, contexts and changing ideas critical to understanding the eighteenth century in France, an important and creative period and place that helped shape the history of the modern world.

Victorian Aboriginal life and customs through early European eyes

David Frankel, Janine Major

2017

Within two generations of the first European settlement of Victoria traditional Aboriginal society was almost entirely destroyed. At the same time many European settlers, government officials and missionaries observed and documented aspects of the everyday lives of the people they were displacing. This selection of over 700 extracts from a wide variety of these sources provides glimpses into this rich and complex world. It includes notes on hunting, fishing and associated technologies; on clothing, ornaments and recreation; on social relationships, exchange systems, ceremonies and associations with Country.

This etextbook reader is a convenient entry-point into this important body of information which is otherwise often difficult to access, and will be of use to anyone with an interest in Victorian Indigenous history and society.
