This book charts the history of Australia during the forty years after its colonies joined together in a Commonwealth in 1901. It examines the institutions fashioned to meet the needs and aspirations of the new nation, and traces the expansion of industry and economy, and social porgress. The book places these events in their international and imperial context, and faces square on the facts of Australia's dependence on Britain.
