About the book

Book cover - Europens in Australia Volume Three

Nation is the third and final volume in the landmark history of Australia. Told from the point of view of settlers from Europe, it covers nation-making, Federation and the tragedy of World War I.

The culmination of a career in the writing and teaching of Australian history, The Europeans in Australia series, is ambitious and unique, and is the first such large, single-author account since Manning Clark's 'A History of Australia'.
