A History of AustraliaBook - 2011
For tens of thousands of years, humans have imagined, visited and inhabited Australia as a place in which to make a future. From the first explorers, who sailed and eventually settled into the inlets and river mouths of the northern coast some sixty or eighty thousand years ago via the transportations of the eighteenth century to the anxious border controls of the twenty-first, and through the great migrations of the centuries in between, Australia's story and its place in the world have been shaped by movement and mobility. This book is an event- and issue-based history of Australia with a chronological narrative which brings to life the ideas, hopes and journeys, both physical and otherwise, of Australians past and present.
