"This book is an essay both in economic history and in the history of economic doctrines. It proposes to shed light on the process of economic development and to trace modification and advance of new ideas in a new environment. The study focuses on enquiry into aspects of the Australian economy from early days until the onset of the Great Depression in 1929, by which time the continent had begun to achieve cultural autonomy as well as political union and independence." - Intro.
