A History of Australia: New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land, 1822-1838
The late Manning Clark aims to bring to attention the foibles and strengths in every person, traits forced to the fore in the hardship and trauma that occured during the establishment and develpment of white settlement in Australia. Clark sets out to use the tragedies and successes of national heroes such as explorerers and generals, and those of the average person such as soldiers at Gallipoli and farmer's wives, to create a memorable tableau.
