Stanner on the Great Australian Silence and Anne Summers on Manzone Country.Real Matildas, Cultural Cringers, Future Eaters and Forgotten People – and much more.Memorably written and cohesive, this is the essential sourcebook of the words that made Australia.Includes essays by Miles Franklin, Albert Metin, Ellis Ashmead-Bartlett, Keith Murdoch, Maybanke Anderson, D.H.
