Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0810826135, Hardcover)

Finding out about Australia outside of Australia can be difficult and even discouraging. This Historical Dictionary of Australia aims at filling that sometimes frustrating gap in reference. It is an introduction to Australia and its history, tracing the history of the continent from the first human settlement about 80,000 years ago to the late 1990s, in 371 cross-referenced entries. Driven by the firm conviction that Australian history has something important and useful to say to the world at large, this second edition spends more time placing Australia in an international context. One of this work's most significant features--and an important contribution to the literature on Australia--is its extensive, analytical, and up-to-date bibliography with over 1,000 items.
