    $12.61
PUBLISHED: 29th June 2009
ISBN: 9780143202813
ANNOTATION:
First published in 1964, the book was a wake-up call to an unimaginative nation, an indictment of a country mired in mediocrity and manacled to its past. Valuable not only as a source of continuing truths and revealing snapshots of the past, but above all as a key to understanding the anxieties and discontents of Australian society today.
