Australian History in 7 Questions

John Hirst
pubblicato da Schwartz Publishing Pty. Ltd

Prezzo online:

If there are genuine questions about Australian history, there is something to puzzle over. The history ceases to be predictableand dull.

From the author of The Shortest History of Europe, acclaimed historian John Hirst, comes this fresh and stimulating approach to understanding Australia's past and present.

Hirst asks and answers questions that get to the heart of Australia's history:

  • Why did Aborigines not become farmers?
  • How did a penal colony change peacefully to a democracy?
  • Why was Australia so prosperous so early?
  • Why did the Australian colonies federate?
  • What effect did convict origins have on national character?
  • Why was the postwar migration programme a success?
  • Why is Australia not a republic?

Engaging and enjoyable, and written for the novice and the expert alike, Australian History in 7 Questions explains how we became the nation we are today.
