Peter's Price:



Australian life has seen many changes in the last century. We have emerged from being a far flung colony of England to a Federated nation. Once bush pioneers living off the land, we now live in sprawling suburbs or inner cities. Along the ways there's been some fascinating shifts in how we dress, eat, travel, entertain and bring up our families.

The Way We Were, written by Alan. J. Whiticker, who has penned books on a diverse range of subjects in the past. This one covers key moments in our political history, our wartime efforts, the rise of superstar entertainers and sportsmen plus the crimes that rocked us and the evolution of our transport system.

In revealing chapter introductions, thorough captions and incredible images of the last hundred years in Australia, The Way We Were paints a remarkable picture of our nation's changing identity.
