AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Australian scholars have written some excellent biographies, and Judith Brett's The Enigmatic Mr Deakin is amongst the best of them. It stands tall alongside recent triumphs like Jill Roe's Stella Miles Franklin and Mark McKenna's An Eye for Eternity: The Life of Manning Clark. Like Roe and McKenna, Brett draws her readers into a sympathetic understanding of a complex and often contradictory subject. And beyond that, to a new appreciation of the society that shaped him and was shaped by him. Not since Allan Martin's Henry Parkes has an Australian biography captured so well the spirit of the age.'  (Introduction)

    'This May 2018 issue of Australian Historical Studies brings together varied but fresh approaches to the study of Australia's past, including from early career scholars. It also features the winning entry in the Ken Inglis Postgraduate Prize, which is for the strongest paper presented by a graduate student at the annual Australian Historical Association Conference and then submitted to AHS for review. The prize, named in honour of the late Ken Inglis who passed away in December 2017, attracted entries from an enthusiastic cohort of doctoral students, and judges Penny Edmonds and Kate Fullagar had a challenging task due to the high quality of the field. We congratulate the 2017 winner of the Ken Inglis Postgraduate Prize, Rowan Light.'  (Introduction)
