The late Manning Clark aims to bring to attention the foibles and strengths in every person, traits forced to the fore in the hardship and trauma that occured during the establishment and develpment of white settlement in Australia. Clark sets out to use the tragedies and successes of national heroes such as explorerers and generals, and those of the average person such as soldiers at Gallipoli and farmer's wives, to create a memorable tableau.

About the Author:

Manning Clark was senior lecturer at the University of Melbourne, and later, Professor of History in the School of General Studies, Australian National University. In 1972 he became the first Professor of Australian History. In June 1975 Clark was made a Companion of the Order of Australia, in recognition of his writing of the monumental A History of Australia. He was named Australian of the Year for 1980. Professor Clark died in May 1991.

Review:

'. . . He flooded whole areas with light in ways that nobody had ever done before. He was an oracle, not a conventional historian.' -- Geoffrey Serle

'. . . He looked for great human issues and presented them as moral dramas.' -- Donald Horne

'. . . a novelist, a painter, a theologian and prophet, and from these callings he brings some of the qualities of imagination, the sense of wonder, and the will to create order from chaos, which is as vital to the historian as those other more common and essential skills.' -- Geoffrey Blainey
