    hey jack, could you point me to some good resources for Australian history? i've heard you say in the past that the U.S. and Australia are developmentally, historically, and culturally very similar, so i thought i'd look more into Australia's history and compare it with ours.

    resources don't have to be online, they can be books and documentaries that i might find at the library. actually, i would prefer physical resources, as something i can hold in my hands can't be edited and corrupted by some greenie punk with a laptop.

    any help in this area would be accepted with gratitude, thanks:)

    to start you off

    http://www.aushistorytimeline.com/

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_Australian_history


    books

    Barker, Anthony. What Happened When: A Chronology of Australia from 1788. Allen & Unwin. 2000. ( online version , not complete http://www.questia.com/PM.qst?a=o&d=108433410 )

    Galligan, Brian, and Winsome Roberts, eds. Oxford Companion to Australian Politics (2007)

    Taylor, Peter. The Atlas of Australian History (1991)

    Alomes, Stephen. A Nation at Last? The Changing Character of Australian Nationalism (1988)

    and if you can find it

    Clark, Manning. A History of Australia 6 vol (Melbourne University Press, 1962, 1968, 1973, 1978, 1981, and 1987)

    the library of congress has this online if you have a account but this would be the best one of all

    cheers
