“White Aborigines is without any doubt an original contribution of major importance - indeed, it is an intellectual exercise conducted at the highest level. the major step which McLean takes is to show that white Australian art, and the writing of its history, has since settlement been in dialogue (although often submerged) with Aboriginal art and culture. The importance of the book lies in the multiplicity of disciplinary and cross-disciplinary inquiries which brings it together, and the originality in the totally new perspectives on Australian art history which it generates. It tackles, with an admirable critical independence, those thinkers and artists whose work is definitive in their fields, and provides a theoretically up-to-date counterpoint to the standard texts. McLean’s text exemplifies the most innovative art history.” -Terry Smith, Power Professor of Contemporary Art and Director of the Power Institute of Fine Arts
