Making Australian History: Perspectives on the Past Since 1788 is an exciting new text that meets an unusual gap in the literature of Australian history. It presents students with an in-depth, multi-authored collection of articles, documents and short essays that are structured around the major themes discussed in most Australian history courses. Each theme in Making Australian History contains a collection of primary and secondary sources, including: chapters by current leading scholars; reprints of publications from previous decades that have proven seminal in the historiographical debate or research of each theme; photographs or artwork and short feature articles on matters of human interest. Making Australian History gives students the unique opportunity to study a range of articles and commentary on such themes as the Anzac legend, the convict stain, gold and federation, white Australia, Australians at war, Aboriginal 'prehistory', femininity, native title, republicanism, the pioneer myth, environmentalism and sustainability, ideology and politics.
