About the Authors
  • With the global economy in crisis, there is great need for a deeper understanding of Australia's economic place in the world – both today and throughout history. This new edition of Barrie Dyster and David Meredith's highly successful book is fully updated, and includes three new chapters covering until the end of 2011. The book explores the evolution of Australia's position in the global economy from the start of the twentieth century through to the present day, examining the international and local economies of five key historical periods. With a focus on trade, foreign investment and immigration, the book considers periods both of growth and decline. By using historical perspectives to explain the present and give direction to the future, this unique book presents a rich account of Australia's position within a global economic context. It is an essential resource for students and lecturers of Australian economic history.

    • The only comprehensive textbook on the market about the history of the Australian economy
    • Fully revised and updated with three new chapters, now spanning from 1914 right up until the end of 2011
    • Extended discussion on the most recent Global Financial Crisis at its impact on Australia
