How did the Angry Penguins acquire their name? Who were the leading members of the Heidelberg School? When was the Baby Bonus introduced? What is Lasseters Reef? Who coined the term Rats of Tobruk? Why were the Swing Rioters transported to Australia? The answers to these and hundreds of other questions about Australia's past can be found in The Oxford Illustrated Dictionary of Australian History. Beginning with the Aboriginal flag and ending with Zeehan, the book has entries on significant people, places, institutions, ideas, movements, events, artefacts, and documents, drawn from political, diplomatic, military, economic, social, cultural, and scientific fields. Extensive cross-references guide the reader to related entries. The carefully chosen illustrations, ranging from early maps to contemporary cartoons, include many which are of great historical interest but have rarely been seen before.
