A History of Australia: The beginning of an Australian civilization, 1824-1851
The third volume of Manning Clark's distinguished history takes the story of Australia to the momentous discovery of gold and the separation of Victoria from New South Wales. Up to this point the story is one of destruction as well as construction: the destruction of the Aborigines and the construction of an essentially English bourgeois society and the taming of an alien and seemingly sterile land along the coastal country.
