Manning Clark's History Of Australia

Michael Cathcart
A seamless version of a classic work which will inspire and challenge Australians for decades to come.
Manning Clark's six-volume work, A History of Australia, is an Australian masterpiece. Published between 1962 and 1987, the work was some three decades in the making. It is the testament of Clark's commitment to Australian scholarship and to telling our story. A History of Australia is one of the most passionately debated visions of our history, in which the struggle to realise an Australian nation is played out on an epic scale. Clark sees the process of change as driven by unceasing conflict between generosity of vision and inevitable human frailty. His Australians are people of great goodwill and deep sinfulness, of expansive ideas and small-mindedness, of patriotic independence and a fearful allegiance to Empire. Michael Cathcart's succinct and imaginative Abridgement ranges from 1788 to the threshold of World War II. His skilful re-orchestration of this monumental work is unerringly faithful to Clark's sympathies, language and understandings.
