Our HeritageBook - 2005
Starting with the Aboriginal Dream Time 50,000 years ago, and ending in the 21st century, this is the story of Australia. It is also an unveiling of a precious, common heritage in the one land that sustains our community and culture. Encompassing the Aboriginal heritage and moving through the convict era, the golden days, depression and drought, the building of the cities, railways and roads, the opening of the land to white settlement and the shift of focus from Europe to Asia, this illustrated history, written by a highly respected Australian academic, reveals a nation built by all the men and women of Australia. John Molony has been Professor of History and then Manning Clark Professor of Australian History at the Australian National University, Canberra (1975-91), Keith Cameron Professor of Australian History at University College Dublin (1991-93) and Foundation Research Professor of the Australian Catholic University (1993- 96). He is currently Visiting Fellow, Australian Dictionary of Biography, at the Australian National University. He is the author of a number of books including `Ned Kelly', published by MUP.
