Terra nullius. A Journey through No One's Land. Translated by Sarah Death. Granta, London 2007. Pbk 2008. The New Press, New York 2007.

"The most original work on Australia and its treatment of Aboriginals I have ever read".  Philip Knightley.

"Sven Lindqvist is a brilliant and original writer as well as a fierce polemicist. With Terra nullius he has undertaken another devastating journey of historical exploration"- Geoff Dyer.

"The latest installment in Sven Lindqvist's confrontation with the genocidal consquences of Westernadvancement... Lindqvist's strength is the shere heat of his passions and the bouldness with which he attacks complacency. The landscape and his journeying are brilliantly rendered by a master of wordly insight and stylistic precsion... a work of urgent necessity and heartwarming marvel." Independent. 

"Probably the most important travel writer at work today... beautifully written and profoundly moving... anyone who shares in the new Australian patriotism should read this and think hard." Traveller.

"A fascinating new book... a reflection on guilt and responsibility." HUGH BRODY, Guradian.T

"An important and troubling book..- Lindqvist's method is stylistically brilliant: a personal, yet highly scholarly narrative gradually unfolds his thesis through vivid travel writing... This is a book that like Bruce Chatwin's work uses the journey as a way of thinking." W.N. Herbert, Scotland on Sunday.

Terra nullius is also published in French, Italian , Dutch and Finnish.
