Acerca de


"A history of Australia" is definitive. The late Manning Clark is recognized as the voice of thinking Australia. In this measured yet sweeping history of the nation, Clark brings to our attention the foibles and strengths in every person, traits forced to the fore in the hardship and trauma that occurred during the establishment and development of white settlement in Australia. Clark uses the tragedies and successes of national heroes such as explorers and generals, and those of the average person such as soldiers at Gallipoli and farmers' wives, to create a memorable tableau.


'...He looked for great human issues and presented them as moral dramas.' -- Donald Horne

'...a novelist, a painter, a theologian and prophet, and from these callings he brings some of the qualities of imagination, the sense of wonder, and the will to create order from chaos, which is as vital to the historian as those other more common and essential skills.' -- Geoffrey Blainey
