Following the hardback from November 2006, comes the paperback version of little history of Australia. Highly readable, often surprising and always enjoyable, "A Little History of Australia" tells the whole story of this Great Southern Land, from its Aboriginal origins to: discovery by European; navigators who claimed the land as their own; the First Fleet, convict settlements and the gold rushes; the birth-pangs of a federated nation, and the experiences of Australians in the world's wars; the successes and problems of the twentieth century, and the celebration of a distinctly Australian way of life. It's all here, in one compact and vividly written volume.show more
