An eye for eternity : the life of Manning Clark by Mark McKenna( Book )
8 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 193 libraries worldwide
Manning Clark was a complex, demanding and brilliant man. Mark McKenna's compelling biography of this giant of Australia's cultural landscape is informed by his reading of Clark's extensive private letters, journals and diaries - many that have never been read before. An Eye for Eternity paints a sweeping portrait of the man who gave Australians the signature account of their own history. It tells of his friendships with Patrick White and Sidney Nolan. It details an urgent and dynamic marriage, ripped apart at times by Clark's constant need for extramarital romantic love. A son who wrote letters to his dead parents. A historian who placed narrative ahead of facts. A believer who flirted with Catholicism. A controversial public figure who marked slights and criticisms with deeply held grudges. To understand Clark's life is to understand twentieth century Australia

Australian republicanism : a reader ( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 130 libraries worldwide
This collection of readings is designed to transform the way Australians understand republicanism. This collection of readings is designed to transform the way Australians understand republicanism. The editors, Mark McKenna and Wayne Hudson, have harvested a wealth of previously neglected historical sources to produce a fascinating collection of original documents that grapple with the issue of Australian republicanism. In the vein of Manning Clark's Select Documents in Australian History, this collection offers an inspiring and salient sample of Australian viewpoints, from the famous to the obscure, the official to the flagrantly informal, the rhetorical to the ridiculous. McKenna and Hudson argue with wit and conviction that the republic has a place in Australia's future, but only if it is a republic founded on a vision of inclusion. 'This is the first principle of creating a sense of ownership and belonging--a republic about which people might begin to care.'
Project republic : plans and arguments for a new Australia ( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 71 libraries worldwide
It's time for some straight talking about Australia's future as a republic. A republic is the key to our national renewal: we need a head of state who shares a genuine affinity with our country rather than an outdated historical link. We can love the Queen -- and be excited about the royal baby -- yet still decide to make it on our own. Australians today have a chance to decide what we want our country to be, and for a home -- grown head of state to lend an Australian dignity to the highest office in our land. Project Republic unites a diverse range of Australian voices to offer a fresh perspective on why Australia must become a republic -- and how we get there from here. Contributors include Larissa Behrendt, John Hirst, Thomas Keneally, Helen Irving, Julian Morrow and John Warhurst
