About this product
- DescriptionAustralia's ecomic history is the story of the transformation of an indigeus ecomy and a small convict settlement into a nation of nearly 23 million people with advanced ecomic, social and political structures. It is a history of vast lands with rich, exploitable resources, of adversity in war, and of prosperity and nation building. It is also a history of human behaviour and the institutions created to harness and govern human endeavour. This account provides a systematic and comprehensive treatment of the nation's ecomic foundations, growth, resilience and future, in an engaging, contemporary narrative. It examines key themes such as the centrality of land and its usage, the role of migrant human capital, the tension between development and the environment, and Australia's interaction with the international ecomy. Written by a team of eminent ecomic historians, The Cambridge Ecomic History of Australia is the definitive study of Australia's ecomic past and present.
