Australia is the last continent to be settled by Europeans, but it also sustains a people and a culture tens of thousands of years old. For much of the past 200 years the newcomers have sought to replace the old with the new. This book tells how they imposed themselves on the land, and describes how they brought technology, institutions and ideas to make it their own. It relates the advance from penal colony to a prosperous free nation and illustrates how, in a nation created by waves of newcomers, the search for binding traditions has long been frustrated by the feeling of rootlessness. Now, with the realisation that colonisation began with invasion, present-day Australians are - more than ever before - coming to terms with their past and recognising the need to redefine and reposition Australia in a changing world. This is the most up-to-date single-volume Australian history available.

Australia is the last continent to be settled by Europeans, but also sustains an ancient people and culture. Now, realising that colonisation began with invasion, present-day Australians are coming to terms with their past and recognising the need to redefine Australia in a changing world. This is the most up-to-date single-volume Australian history available. Drawing on the latest research, it takes up present concerns with indigenous issues, the environment and the republic question. Essential reading for residents and visitors alike.

David McIntyre

David Martin McIntyre (1859 -1938) was a Scottish preacher and Principal of the Bible Training Institute, Glasgow from 1913 to 1938. His academic career centred in Edinburgh, and he worked as a missionary in St John's Church, Leith, under the guidance of Dr John Kelman, father of the minister of the same name at St George's, Edinburgh.
McIntyre wrote a good number of Christian books, often under the spelling M'Intyre, and edited The King's Writ - A Quarterly Journal of Bible Study in the 1920s. His best known book is probably The Hidden Life of Prayer (Tain: Christian Focus Publications) and The Prayer Life of Jesus (Tain: Christian Focus Publications)
