A History of Australia lll: The Beginning Of An Australian Civilization 1824-1851, written by C.M.H. Clark and published by Melbourne University Press in 1973. The third volume of Manning Clark's distinguished history takes the story of Australia to the momentous discovery of gold and the separation of Victoria from New South Wales. Up to this point the story is one of destruction as well as construction, the destruction of the aborigines and the construction of an essentially English bourgeois society and the taming of an alien and seemingly sterile land along the coastal country. This is not a general Australian history-it does not attempt to cover all aspects -and it is not a definitive or quantitative analysis. It is a work of art, a living and breathing account of the remaking of a primitive continent, history come alive. first Edition. Condition: Good. Dust jacket: Fair with general wear. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting.
