In Australian economic history, as in the nation's politics and culture, the Great Depression is a dominant theme. In this volume, an international group of economists and economic historians has collaborated to examine the ways in which Australia survived and recovered from economic depression. The Australian experience is set in the wider context of the world economy, and comparisons are made with Britain, Canada, New Zealand, and Japan.
