Turning Points - ebook: epub

Chapters in South Australian history

Robert Foster, Paul Sendziuk

South Australia has often been represented as 'different': free of convicts, more enlightened in its attitudes toward Aboriginal people, established on rational economic principles, and progressive in its social and political development. Some of this is true, some of it is not, but mostly the story is more complex.

In this book, eminent historians explore these themes by examining some key 'turning points' in South Australia's history. ...

Under the Burning Sun

A history of colonial South Australia, 18361900

R.M. Gibbs

South Australia has a reputation for being different. Conceived as a 'province' fully formed, it was the only colony to be founded by an Act of the British parliament. The ideals present at its founding in 1836 included enlightened aspirations towards the Aboriginal inhabitants. In colonial times it succeeded in becoming the granary of the Australian continent, though limited resources often handicapped it. Adelaide, the colony's capital, exercised an influence over the colony unmatched by the capitals in other Australian colonies. This book seeks to explore the South Australian experience to the time of Australia's federation in 1901. ...
