Product description


A well-informed, instructive, highly readable and often entertaining narrative of Australia-China relations from before the beginnings of Australia to the present day.

Macklin shows how China has been an integral part of our story from the beginning.

In this timely and engaging book, there is a wealth of information that will please anyone with an interest in China . . . This is a necessary book for our times. It is pertinent and reflective. - WEEKLY TIMES

This book, which is anything but a dry history, brings the first 80 years of this settlement alive with its personal stories of love, hate and bravery, interspersed among the fascinating historical facts that I never learned. Robert Macklin calls Hamilton Hume 'our greatest explorer', and now that I've read this enthralling but at times shocking story, I totally agree. - GOOD READING on Robert Macklin's HAMILTON HUME

I learnt so many things, I highly recommend it. - ABC NEWS BREAKFAST on Robert Macklin's HAMILTON HUME

You almost feel you are taking that trek with the party as Robert Macklin cites the obstacles - torrential river crossings, dense bush, the Snowy Mountains and more. Macklin covers Hume's public and private life, emphasising his affinity with the country and rapport with the Indigenous people, as well as providing a portrait of the evolving colony. - SYDNEY MORNING HERALD on Robert Macklin's HAMILTON HUME

a fascinating read - DAILY TELEGRAPH on Robert Macklin's DARK PARADISE

riveting and shocking - HERALD SUN on Robert Macklin's SAS SNIPER

Book Description
