It provides concise, informative and fascinating descriptions of prominent men and women of this country who contributed their vision and energies to a growing nation.

Each entry is prepared by a leading scholar. The subjects come from all walks of life—from premiers, generals and bishops, through artists, actors and authors, farmers, engineers and schoolteachers, to prostitutes, thieves and murderers—providing a cross-section of Australian society.

This magnificent cumulative work continues to be a valuable and popular reference tool for all libraries, large and small.
