Australia, Britain, and Migration 1915-1940: A Study of Desperate Hopes  
"This book is the first systematic study of assisted emigration from Britain to Australia during the inter-war years. It looks at the British and Australian politicians and bureaucrats involved in the program and the half-million migrants who uprooted themselves. Both governments used migration to meet their different needs, with little regard for the migrants themselves. Not only is the book an important study of imperial relations in the 1920s and 1930s, it describes an important and overlooked aspect of Australian political and social history."

Convict Maids: The Forced Migration of Women to Australia  
"Looking at female convicts transported from Britain and Ireland to New South Wales between 1826 and 1840, this text refutes the notion that these women were unskilled prostitutes and criminals, arguing that in fact, they were skilled, literate, young and healthy."

The Origins of Irish Convict Transportation to New South Wales  
"This study explores the pre-history of Irish convict transportation to New South Wales that began with the Queen in April 1791. It traces earlier attempts to revive the Trans-Atlantic convict trade and frustrated efforts by Irish authorities to join in the Botany Bay scheme after 1786. The nine Irish shipments to North America and the West Indies are described in detail for the first time, including the dramatic outcomes in Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and the Leeward Islands which eventually forced the Home Office to find space for Irish convicts on the Third Fleet. These events are related against the background of Dublin's burgeoning crime rate in the 1780's, the critical insecurity of its prison system and the troubled political relationship between Ireland and Britain."

Australian Genesis: Jewish Convicts and Settlers 1788-1860 icon
"This is a new updated and expanded edition of the first and most comprehensive account of the early Jewish settlement of Australia. Its span is now extended to include the gold rush era, a period from which many Jewish-Australian families are descended. This is an enthralling book in its own right. Intensely human, it is also an important work of scholarship which illuminates many little known corners of Australian history and casts a fresh light on the popularly accepted versions of some well-known incidents."

Private Wars: Personal Records of the Anzacs in the Great War
"Greg Kerr retraces the journey of Australian and New Zealand troops from Gallipoli in 1915 to the final penetration of the Hindenburg Line in 1918. While covering the general strategic course of the war, the author focuses on the human side of the war. Similar to his acclaimed Lost Anzacs: The Story of Two Brothers, Kerr follows the experiences of roughly sixty figures--officers, privates, nurses--and captures their experiences through judicious and uncensored extracts from their letters and diaries. The book also includes numerous photos, many previously unpublished. The combination of photos, letters, and historical background make for an unforgettable account of what the war was really like on the ground."

George Barrington's Voyage to Botany Bay: Retelling a Convict's Travel Narrative of the 1790s

The Fatal Shore: The Epic of Australia's Founding  
"An extraordinary volume--even a masterpiece--about the early history of Australia that reads like the finest of novels. Hughes captures everything in this complex tableau with narrative finesse that drives the reader ever-deeper into specific facts and greater understanding. He presents compassionate understanding of the plights of colonists--both freemen and convicts--and the Aboriginal peoples they displaced."

A Concise History of Australia icon
"Australia is the last continent to be settled by Europeans, but also sustains an ancient people and culture. Now, realizing that colonization began with invasion, present-day Australians are coming to terms with their past and recognizing the need to redefine Australia in a changing world. This is the most up-to-date single-volume Australian history available. Drawing on the latest research, it takes up present concerns with indigenous issues, the environment and the republic question. Essential reading for residents and visitors alike."
