Description

Does history provide us with cautionary tales or does it highlight the contested nature of our understanding of the past?

Colonisation, nationalism, racism. Fighting on foreign shores, violence on our own country. Workers' rights, land booms, cultural wars. What can we learn from these reoccurring events across the recent history of this nation?

In The Knowledge Solution- History, the country's most compelling writers and historians give insight into the challenging and diverse perspectives of Australia's past, and illuminate how we may better step into the future.
