571 pages. Boards have no wear, rubbing or soiling. Edges of dust jacket have light bumping. Dust jacket is unclipped. Edges of pages are slightly foxed. In 1962, the first volume of Manning Clark's "A History of Australia" appeared. For the next two-and-a-half decades Clark unfolded his tragic celebration of white Australian history. Today, the six-volume history is one of the masterpieces of Australian literature. It is also one of the most passionately debated visions of Australian history. Clark's Australians are men and women of lively goodwill and deep sinfulness, of generous ide... View more info

Condition: Very Good


182 pages. Minor spine lean and edge wear to dust jacket. Manning Clark and Kathleen Fitzpatrick were influential Australian historians; they were both also gifted writers. The personal letters they exchanged over a period of forty years are published for the first time in Dear Kathleen, Dear Manning. Reading these letters, we trace the gradual development of an unlikely, but deep and sympathetic friendship. On the surface they had little in common, apart from their interest in Australian history: Clark's left-wing politics contrasted with Fitzpatrick's staunch liberalism; her privileged backg...

Price: $23.00

Publisher: Australia, Allen & Unwin: 2000

Edition: First Edition

Seller ID: 19030369

Condition: Good


283 pages. Covers have light creasing. Edges of covers have superficial edgewear and corners are moderately bumped. Spine has minor lean and minimal reading creases. Edges of pages are slightly soiled. Despite our enduring fascination with Bligh, Christian and the Bounty, few Australians or New Zealanders are aware of the naval mutinies within their national histories. Since 1916 there have been more mutinies in the Royal Australian Navy than in any other navy maintained by an English-speaking nation. New Zealand's navy, by contrast, has suffered only one mutiny, although it was one of the lar... View more info

In the early morning of 5 August 1944, more than eleven hundred Japanese prisoners of war attempted to break out of their prison camp near the New South Wales town of Cowra.

At the time and for years afterwards, the facts of the affair were not disclosed. It became a kind of sleeping secret. The in the 1960's, Harry Gordon set out to dis... View more info

Seller ID: 12010122

187 pages. Top rear corner of cover is slightly bent. Spine is faded slightly. This book is an unread copy. On Wednesday 18 February 1942 the Japanese air force bombed Darwin. This fact is known to most Australians, but very few know exactly how it happened. The War Cabinet immediately ordered a news black-out, and the propoganda they released at the time has since become part of our verbal history. But the sequence of events in Darwin that day certainly did not reflect the military honour that the War Cabinet wished us to believe. On the contrary, for what really happened was a combination of... View more info
