Summary Blunders, stuff-ups and misjudgments are a part of any country's history. Dwelling on what might have been isn't always helpful, but recognizing our mistakes and learning from them is important. In this highly original and provocative book leading Australian historians attempt to do just that. Many stories, scenarios and situations are explored with verve, compassion and insight. The Great Mistakes of Australian History is a lively and provocative account of where we might have got it wrong, written so that next time we can get it right
