What Happened When - A Chronology of Australia from 1788, Anthony Barker
10 Anthony Barker What Happened When - A Chronology of Australia from 1788
Allen & Unwin 227984 Australia 1996 1863739866 / 9781863739863 Softcover Near Fine Condition When was the Melbourne Cup first run? When did women get the vote? When was Vegemite invented? When did Nellie Melba give her last Australian concert? When, indeed, did any noteworthy event happen in Australia? The answers are all in What Happened When? If you want to know what was going on in a particular year, you can browse. In 1932, for example, you will find that the Sydney Harbour Bridge was opened, Phar Lap died, the ABC was established, Ion Idriess wrote Flynn of the Inland, Ken Hall directed On Our Selection, Walter Lindrun made a world-record billiards break of 4,137, the basic wage was ST3, 3s, 11d and over 30 per cent of the workforce was unemployed. The year-by-year arrangement of the text makes it easy to refer to, and the 18-page index is a valuable reference source in itself, providing answers to questions such as: What was Chips Rafferty's real name? When was Germaine Greer born? When was The Summer of the Seventeenth Doll first staged and filmed? Who were the Prime Ministers during the two World Wars? Which horses have won the Melbourne Cup twice? What Happened When will settle arguments, refresh memories, furnish some surprises and answer a lot of questions. 487 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Wasps Tykes and Ecumaniacs - Aspects of Australian Sectarianism 1948-1981, Benjamin Edwards
13 Benjamin Edwards Wasps Tykes and Ecumaniacs - Aspects of Australian Sectarianism 1948-1981
Acorn Press 227560 Australia 2008 0908284748 / 9780908284740 Softcover Near Fine Condition Sectarianism has always been a significant force in Australian socio-cultural life and during 1945-81, intense changes in society and religion in Australia and overseas brought many contentious issues to the fore. Some of the changes in Australian society were brought about by the religious revival of the 1950s, the rise of ecumenism and the Second Vatican Council in the 1960s, postwar mass-immigration, the politics of education, and increasing secularism. This book offers a contribution to the historical understanding of sectarianism in Australian society of this period. It also records the lingering significance of sectarianism in Australian society through to the early twenty-first century using oral history and memoir. 261 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams. Category: Australian::Australian History; Genealogy & Local History; ISBN/EAN: 9780908284740. Inventory No: 227560. Paperback

14 Bernard Smith - Editor Documents on Art and Taste in Australia The Colonial Period 1770-1914
Oxford University Press 226964 Australia 1979 0195504763 / 9780195504767 Trade Paperback Good Condition No Dust Jacket This book brings together, in the form of an annotated critical anthology, a selection of writings by, or about, artists who lived and worked in Australia between 1770 and 1914. The extracts are arranged chronologically and by topic in order to illustrate the current preoccupations of a period. The author has built his selections round the two themes of Art and Nature, providing a wide variety of approach while at the same time indicating, in his own commentary, the ways in which these ideas were linked to the emergence of traditional attitudes. Each chapter contains an explanatory introduction, biographical notes about the authors of each extract, and annotations of the texts. People who want to understand the beginnings of Australian art from the points of view of those who brought that art into existence will find this book fascinating. 299 pages. Spine faded. Light tanning to page edges. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Australian::Australian History; Art & Design; Art. ISBN: 0195504763. ISBN/EAN: 9780195504767.
