A Shorter History of Australia

By Geoffrey Blainey


A broad, concise and inclusive vision of Australia and Australians by one our most renowned historians.

After a lifetime of research and debate on Australian and international history, Geoffrey Blainey is well-placed to introduce us to the people who have played a part and to guide us through the events which have created the Australian identity: the mania for spectator sport, the suspicion of the tall poppy, the rivalries of Catholic and Protestant, Sydney and Melbourne, new and old homelands and new and old allies, the conflicts of war abroad and race at home, the importance of technology, defining the outback, the rise and rise of the mining industry, the recognition of our Aboriginal past and Native Title, the successes and failures of the nation.
