Formatted abstract
This study of race relations on the pastoral frontier can be regarded as an exercise in history and anthropology. Principally, it is concerned with the origins of conflict between tne settlers and the Aborigines. A number of hypotheses thought to be relevant are tested against data derived from the period of pastoral expansion in South East Queensland during 1840 - 1860. The study suggests that conflict will arise between two groups when there are two competing systems of law and order which allow for the possibility of differing interpretations of what constitutes wrong action. Conflict develops as the members who subscribe to each system of law and order try to apply traditional sanctions against wrong actions, perhaps, unwittingly committed. The conflict stage may be regarded sis terminated when both groups adopt a common set of norms to regulate interaction between them. On the pastoral frontier, this was achieved during the 'station adaptation' phase.
