A New History of the Great Southern LandBook - 2006
Australia: The Great Southern Land is a major new account that draws on a rich array of sources to place Australia's history fully in a global context. In a compelling narrative, acclaimed historian Frank Welsh traces the history of the land from scattered convict settlements to today's thriving independent nation. Original, provocative, and witty, Australia: The Great Southern Land is the most comprehensive single-volume history of Australia yet published. It makes a strong claim to becoming the standard work on this fascinating and often misunderstood country.
