A treasure trove of a book presenting the history of Australia over two centuries, from before the First Fleet to the recent Iraqi conflict. It has 500 pictures in monochrome and colour and a bright, readable text rich in little-known facts about a remarkable country.
The book covers the saga of discovery and exploration, the social experiments that made Australia a model for older societies and the Australian participation in two World Wars. (publisher blurb)
