AU$45.00

Published in 2001 this collection of 18 essays was produced as part of the Liberal Party's contribution to the Centenary of Federation celebrations.


'This book is about liberalism, the political philosophy pre-eminent at Australia's federation and during its first one hundred years. It provides an authoritative account of the achievements of the Party, and its forerunners, in Australia's development as a nation. The book demonstrates the pervasive impact of liberalism on the nation's political institutions and the policies which have shaped the growth of its economy and society. Based on the work of a diverse group of Australian scholars Liberalism and the Australian Federation demonstrates that during the twentieth century, Australian history and Australian liberalism were closely intertwined.
