Description : This handbook completes Emeritus Professor Colin Hughes' major reference work on Australian government and politics in the 20th century. It is a sequel to three earlier volumes published in 1968, 1977 and 1986, which have become standard research tools for Australian historians and political scientists. It details, firstly, all members of all Australian ministries, cabinets and portfolios, with dates and notes, and secondly, voting information (both upper and lower houses of Parliament) for all general elections, Commonwealth, State and Territory, held between 1985 and 1999. It thus gathers together in the one book information which is otherwise scattered through a number of official publications, some not widely available. This consolidation and annotation follows the format established in the three earlier volumes and will join them as an indispensable reference work. A NSW Sesquicentenary of Responsible Government publication.
Description : 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 realization that colonization began with invasion, present-day Australians are more than ever before coming to terms with their past and recognizing the need to redefine and reposition Australia in a changing world. This is the most up-to-date single-volume Australian history available.

The First Four Decades is a celebration of the significant contribution Australian Galleries has had on the Australian commercial gallery scene since it's inception in 1956. Led with formidable energy and determination by its founders, Tam and Anne Purves, and continued to the present day by their son, Stuart Purves, Australian Galleries pioneered the professionally operated commercial gallery, providing a platform to promote the reputation of an important group of Australian artists in the emerging post war art market. Spanning the period of 1956 - 1999, Caroline Field's sensitive and revealing narrative combines the personal story of the Purves family against the backdrop of an exciting and stimulating period in the Australian art world. Appealing to a diverse readership this book includes fascinating archival photography, anecdotes and memoirs from major artists, critics, collectors and supporters of the gallery providing a significant insight into the relationships, personalities, activities and events that occurred in the Gallery's early growth. Caroline Field presents an engaging record of the rich and colourful history of the formative decades of one of the nation's earliest commercial gallery spaces, and illustrates the enormous contribution Australian Galleries has made towards the promotion and public acceptance of Australian modern art.
