Claiming a Continent: A New History of Australia
Claiming a Continent: A New History of Australia
by David Day
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.99

3.0 out of 5 stars History of Oz, 24 Sept. 2009
Do not buy this book unless you are very familiar with the geography and topography of Australia. While the contents are erudite and often thought-provoking, and clearly based on a deep knowledge of the subject, for some reason the publishers have seen fit not to include any drawings or maps. In a book that has a geographic reference on nearly every page, this is an infuriating omission for any reader not already familiar with the terrain. Full marks to the author, no marks to the publisher!
