Book DescriptionSince 1966, the Australian Dictionary of Biography has provided concise, informative, and fascinating descriptions of prominent men and women who contributed their vision and energies to a growing nation. The subjects come from all walksof life--from premiers, generals, and bishops, through artists, actors, authors, farmers, engineers, and schoolteachers, to prostitutes, bushrangers, and murderers--providing a representative cross-section of Australian society. While biography necessarily focuses on the individual, the sweeping range of these personal stories illuminates large themes in Australia's recent history, including immigration, rapid industrialization, urbanization and suburbanization, war (WWII, Korea, Malaysia, and Vietnam), material progress, conservative and radical politics, and the loss of isolation and innocence. Maintaining the ADB's tradition of scholarship, this volume covers the period 1940-1980, from Pik-Z.
