For much of the 200 odd years of white occupation, Australians lived with a fear that they had no history worth recounting - too young a country for a history, it was said. Until Manning Clark came along with his six volume A History of Australia in which, framed and narrated as epic, there unfolds the story we now tell ourselves with all its familiar staging posts: Cook, convicts, Rum rebellion, gold, the sheep's back, Burke and Wills, Federation, the glorious defeat at Gallipoli, and so on. And surfacing throughout that dramatic and sprawling account are incisive and colourful portraits of its great men with their tragic flaws: Phillip, Macquarie, Bligh, Wentworth, Henry Lawson. Such is the huge stage and the parade of characters that make up the Manning Clark history."--Provided by publisher."@en
