A History of Australia

Christina Twomey, Mark Peel

This history of Australia begins with the first human settlers, the Aboriginal societies who were forging their own future, not ‘awaiting the arrival of the Europeans so that history could begin’. The authors go on to describe British settlements between 1500 and 1800, the federation of colonies in 1901, the nation’s experience of world wars and social change in the 20th century, and Australia’s place in the world in 2017.
