The Australian Book of Great Trials: The Cases that Shaped a Nation

by Jeremy Stoljar

The Australian Book of Great Trials tells the story of some of the most interesting and important trials in Australian history, including the first ever civil case, brought by two convicts a short time after the First Fleet landed; the remarkable tale of bushranger and folk hero Ned Kelly; the dingo and the baby at Uluru; and Eddie Mabo’s historic fight to establish Indigenous people’s ownership of their land.

These are more than remarkable stories – they also tell us something about Australian life, what we stand for, and our belief in a ‘fair go’.
