The Passing of The Aborigines was one of the most influential books about Australia ever to be published.  Daisy Bates, record of her lifetime amongst the Aborigines was criticised for some of the attitudes it expressed, notably her belief in their inevitable extinction.  In scientific circles, Daisy Bates was dismissed as a crank. However, anthropologists, historians and all those interested in Aboriginal Australia have begun to realise that her unique knowledge of Aboriginal society cannot be lightly dismissed. In this edition her original 1936 newspaper series, 'My Natives and I' has been integrated with the 1938 book, restoring the omissions and indicating the additions.
