South Australia and Federation
South Australia and Federation presents a lively and lucid account of what was happening in South Australia at a vital turning point in its history. The federation era was the highwater mark of South Australian's interaction with people in the rest of Australia. Elected representatives of the central colony/state played a key role in creating and shaping the new Australian nation in its formative years. Peter Howell tells this story in the context of fresh examination of the ways in which South Australians were developing their own community.
