Description

The making of the Constitution of the Australian Commonwealth was the work of many hands. In this book a distinguished political scientist acknowledges seven of the makers by providing a detailed account of their distinctive contributions to the creation of one nation from six British colonies. The result is a valuable study of the political leadership during the Federation period, built from left portraits of figures whose role in the struggle for Federation has not so far received the attention it deserves.show more
