While Australia is a young nation, its development over a period of little more than two centuries has been rapid and remarkable.

This book is a social, cultural, political, economic, and military history of Australia covering the nation's history from the continent's pre-European era through to the present day. It focuses on the early history of the Colonies and key events in their history prior to Federation, as well as each of the decades - since Federation - to the present day.
