The making of Australia : a concise history by Robert Murray( )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and Chinese and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, the author draws on a lifetime's fascination with Australian history and 45 years writing about it to give a clear, concise history of the country. From the coming of the first Aborigines perhaps 60,000 years ago, certainly 40,000, to the election of the Abbott government in 2013, Murray traces the forces that have shaped the nation. In Murray's mainly chronological account the main periods and events in the Australian story are all present. The content is political, social and economic, showing how these strands of Australian life interacted in eras of exploration, in boom periods and depressions and droughts, and in a number of wars. The transition from a convict society to a free one is traced, as is development of representative government and of Federation, the growth of cities, and the careers and influence of key politicians. A notable feature is the systematic treatment given to Aboriginal-settler relations and how they have evolved over more than two centuries. In doing this Murray gives, briefly, both sides of controversies that have led to heated disputes in recent times. This is done in a way that allows the reader to continue to follow developments and modern debates
The split; Australian Labor in the fifties by Robert Murray( Book )

13 editions published between 1970 and 1984 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Labor Split of the 1950s changed the whole shape of Australian politics, but until now it has been clouded by myths and the emotions of the opposing factions. 'The Split' penetrates this confusion and with the aid of 'inside information' examines the complex series of events that led to this momentous breakdown. The story of the split has its roots in the war years when the Communist Party of Australia was quietly building up its strength in the trade unions in the wake of the 'gallant ally' period of sympathy for Russia. By the post war years, however, ex-communists, dedicated Catholics, the ALP and trade union leaders all contributed to an intense anti-communist climate and to the formation of the ALP Industrial Groups. The decision to form these groups created tensions and factions which affected all core institutions in the maze of Labor power centres - federal and state executives and conferences, the trades and labor councils, and the unions. The split had run its course by the spring of 1957, but it left the Australian Labor Party seemingly permanently weakened and incapable of attaining office either nationally or in the worst affected states. Repercussions from this period have been felt ever since and now 'The Split' explains the background in a dramatic narrative of intrigues, dedications and wheeler dealing
