Review: The Tyranny Of Distance: How Distance Shaped Australia's History

User Review  - Josh - Goodreads

Awesome book discussing distance as a major factor in the founding, developing and defending the Australian continent. Enlightening; unlike any Australian history presented in schools. Logical, analytical and easy to read, Blainey is indeed a good storyteller. Read full review
