Details

'The Middle Way' covers the sweep of Australian history from the Fall of Singapore in 1942 to the Bicentennial celebrations of 1988. It tells the story of a middle-sized nation poised in the Southwest Pacific where the ambitions of three superpowers met: those of Britain, Japan and the United States. What kind of national identity developed under those pressures? During those years Anglo-Celtic dominance gave way to a mixed community of European and Asian migrants in pursuit of the migrant dream of modest prosperity and fair opportunities. Governments seeking to satisfy these aims grappled with a changing world economy. This book links political, economic and social history and looks at the lives of many individuals, both famous and otherwise.
