From Aboriginal history to kitschy souvenirs to the shelves of your local sports store, boomerangs have a fascinating place in history and popular culture.

Author Philip Jones draws on the world's largest boomerang collection at the South Australian Museum to describe the boomerang's traditional uses and its more recent flight into western culture. Boomerang is an extensive pictorial guide to this unique Australian icon, covering its uses and traditional and contemporary history. Also included are sections on the boomerang in world sport, the physics of a returning boomerang, and instructions on how to make your own. Illustrated with over 100 full-colour photographs.
