A History of Australia VI "the Old Dead Tree and the Young Tree Green" 1916-1935 with an Epilogue Clark, C. M. H.,
Melbourne University Press, Carlton, Victoria, 1988. Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. Illustrator: Various. First Edition. 1.0 kg; XVI, 524 pages, last two pages blank, indexed. 13 pages of plates, five maps. This volume tells the story of Australia from the beginning of 1916 to the end of 1935. It concludes with an epilogue which reflects on the fate of some of the principal characters in the volume, and the revolution in the way of life and values of Australians since the dropping of the atomic bomb in August 1945. Like its predecessors, this volume does not pretend to be a general history of the period. It concentrates on those events which have helped to make Australians what they are, and aware of what they might be. It is an attempt to impose an order on the chaos. It is one man's vision of the past, one man's answer to the Hilda Esson question: "can't we do anything ourselves as Australians?"". From the preface by the author. Fading of the spine, with short tear at heel of spine. Previous owner's details at top of first page. No other damage. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Please refer to accompanying picture (s).
