The Oxford companion to Australian history by Graeme Davison ( Book )
25 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in English and held by 1,127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Companion draws on the latest scholarship and covers the people, institutions, and events that have shaped Australian society, politics, and culture. It is edited by three of Australia's finest historians - Graeme Davison, John Hirst, and Stuart Macintyre - and includes contributions from 317 scholars and writers throughout Australia." "The Companion contains approximately 1600 entries, ranging from essays of up to 2000 words to succinct, factual entries of 100 words. There are entries on politicians, colonisers, visionaries, newspaper barons, industrialists, explorers, writers, artists, and scientists. All the most famous Australians appear in the Companion, including Don Bradman, Ned Kelly, John Curtin, Joan Sutherland, and Patrick White. There are entries on the states, key institutions, prominent families, and famous or infamous events, such as Gallipoli, the Dismissal, the Rum Rebellion, and the Waterloo Creek Massacre. There are numerous extended essays on key facets of our national life - political, social, cultural, scientific, military, and economic. Readers will find incisive entries on matters such as art, capital punishment, gambling, language, literature, military history, and republicanism."--BOOK JACKET
The sentimental nation : the making of the Australian Commonwealth by J. B Hirst ( Book )
20 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Was Australia's Federation merely a practical, business arrangement? No, says John Hirst. It was accomplished by poets, patriots, and politicians pursuing the ideal of nationhood. They expressed and encouraged a national sentiment without which union would have been impossible. There was no pressing need to federate; this was a sentimental nation." "This comprehensive history of the attainment of Federation in Australia is a major contribution to the centenary in 2001. The Sentimental Nation is written by one of Australia's leading historians. John Hirst is superbly equipped to communicate the dramas and intricacies of our national history in lucid, entertaining, and sophisticated ways. One of Australia's most cogent historians and commentators, he has an enviable ability to make Australian history more enticing to non-specialist readers." "Dr. Hirst's research into Federation has occupied much of his time in recent years. He has visited archives throughout Australia. Much of this research has never been undertaken before. Whereas the history is intended for a broad popular readership, its scholarly credentials are impeccable, and it is destined to become the primary reference on the subject."--BOOK JACKET
