AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The first new biography of Lachlan Macquarie in decades, this book draws on a wealth of sources to paint a picture of the man and his times. It must be seen as one of the great ironies of Australian history that as far as the British Government was concerned he failed in his duty as Governor of New South Wales. Macquarie had in fact had a vision shared by few others that New Holland had the potential to become 'one of the greatest and most flourishing colonies belonging to the British Empire' - and became determined to do his part in steering the fledgling community in that direction.'
