'...contains a wealth of primary source material graphically showing Australia's history in the making.  The sources used - chiefly newspaper reports, diaries, letters, and official records, together with contemporary illustrations and photographs - cover the most important political and social issues of the last two centuries, bringing the past vividly to life.
The documents contained in this book have been carefully selected to show how present-day Australia has been shaped by her past.  The result is a remarkable 'living' history: both a fascinating overview of Australia's story and an invaluable source book for the student and general reader alike.'
