A History of Australia weaves together a vivid, multi-dimensional history that considers key cultural, social, political and economic events and issues within the wider global context. Comprehensive and accessible, this is essential reading for all those seeking an authoritative overview of Australian history.
This revised second edition has been updated throughout to incorporate the latest research and to bring the story up to the present day.
