The Knowledge Solution: Australian History

What place does history have in a post-truth world?

Anna Clark
Acclaimed historian and writers reveal defining moments of Australian history and what impact they'll have on our future
Does history provide us with cautionary tales or does it highlight the contested nature of our understanding of the past? Colonisation, nationalism, racism. Fighting on foreign shores, violence on our own country. Workers' rights, land booms, cultural wars. What can we learn from these reoccurring events across the recent history of this nation? In The Knowledge Solution: History, the country's most compelling writers and historians give insight into the challenging and diverse perspectives of Australia's past, and illuminate how we may better step into the future. Contributors include: David Unaipon Michael Cannon Stuart Macintyre Rebe Taylor Mark McKenna Rebecca Perkins Marcia Langton Peter Sutton Jo Wainer James Curran Stuart Ward Ellen Warn Michele Grossman John Rickard Peter Spearritt Helen MacDonald Janet McCalman Mark Davis Richard Evans Edward Duyker Ray Parkin Geoffrey Blainey Peter Cochrane Raffaello Carboni Bain Attwood Manning Clark
