"Dingo" a book by local researcher Brad Purcell
Many present-day Australians see the dingo as a threat and a pest to human production systems. An alternative viewpoint,
which is more in tune with Indigenous culture, allows others to see the dingo as a means to improve human civilisation.
The dingo has thus become trapped between the status of pest animal and totemic creature. This book helps readers to recognise this dichotomy,
as a deeper understanding of dingo behaviour is now possible through new technologies which have made it easier to monitor their daily lives.
