About the Book

David Day's much-lauded history of Australia, CLAIMING A CONTINENT, won the prestigious Non-Fiction Prize at the South Australian Festival Awards for Literature. Now in its fourth edition, this study of Australian history is sure to draw new readers.

Provocative and daring, Day has established himself in the top echelon of Australian historians by not being afraid of challenging Australia's accepted historical narratives. In CLAIMING A CONTINENT, Day explores the events that have shaped Australia from 1788 to the present day. He places the original British conquest within the broader context of an ongoing struggle by Australians to secure their possession of the ancient continent and to hold it against future challenges. It is a story that still continues and, in the twenty-first century, it is as relevant as ever.
