Author(s): William McInnes
Filled with stories from regular Australians about life since World War Two and woven throughout with William's own anecdotes and observations, The Making of Modern Australia pieces together the celebrations, sorrows and spirit of the last fifty years to offer a national picture of our past and present. Told through four main themes - romance, religion, family and home. From the trepidation of the outbreak of armed conflict to the multicultural melting pot of postwar migration, to falling in and out of love and religion, to the changes in parenting and family relations, this book reveals a very personal view of Australia.
William McInnes is the author of A Man's Got to Have a Hobby, Cricket Kings, That'd Be Right, and The Making of Modern Australia.
