"Perhaps because of the width of cultural chasm, between the two peoples, each initially views the other as objects of threat, but of curiousity and amusement... Dancing with Strangers is Inga Clendinnen's seminal account of the moment in January 1788 when the First Fleet arrived in Sydney Harbour and a thousand British men and women encountered the Australians living there. 'These people mixed with ours,' wrote a British observer after landfall, 'and all hands danced together.' What followed would shape relations between the people for the next two centuries."--Back cover.
