Suspect History: Manning Clark and the Future of Australian History

by Humphrey McQueen

Paul Keating and John Howard used history to promote opposing policies on the republic and Mabo, invoking Manning Clark and Geoffrey Blainey as authorities for their respective sides. Reminding us of the stakes in the battle for possession of Australian history, McQueen is erudite and passionate in his musing on the problems of walking backwards into the future.
