Secondhand. Very good condition. Minor edgewear.
Manning Clark's six-volume history is one of the masterpieces of Australian writing. It is also one of the most passionately debated visions of Australian history, in which the struggle to realise an Australian nation is played out on an epic scale.
This abridgment by Michael Carthcart re-orchestrates Manning Clark's 1962 six volume classic on Australian history. Carthcart never loses sight of Clark's sympathies and understanding. Succinctly and imaginatively he brings Clark to us, retaining all the magnificence of the original.
