Australia is supposed to be a democratic society without dynastic ambition. Yet since European settlement more than two hundred years ago, certain ambitious families have achieved wealth and influence: though in some cases their histories are chequered. The Macarthurs, for instance, leaders in establishing Australia's fine wool industry, have seen their influence dwindle; the Duracks, who became rich when they opened up the Kimberley to cattle, did not maintain their fortunes. But the Downers, Myers, De Bortolis and Murdochs have survived and prospered. Julie Browning and Laurie Critchley trace the history of each of these families, and in the process write Australian history in a new way. Moisture damage evident on bottom edges of first pages. 265 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.
