Who's Master? Who's Man? Australia in the Victorian Age

£9.99

Product description

This is the first of a projected series of three volumes surveying what remains from Australia's Victorian Age of relevance to our present-day society. It concentrates largely on immigration of people of widely differing types - convicts, military men, merchants, squatters, gold-seekers and coloured immigrants - then proceeds to show how these widely differing types of people were shaken down by circumstances into two distinct Australian classes, characterised by the author as the exploiters and the exploited. Illustrations have been carefully selected from contemporary sources because of their historical or social relevance, and admirably enhance Michael Cannon's vividly described account of a formative period of Australian history.
