Summary

In "The Tyranny of Distance", an Australian classic that has been continuously in print since 1967, Geoffrey Blainey describes how distance and isolation have been central to Australia's history and in shaping its national identity, and will continue to form its future. Fully revised and updated, this edition examines how distance and isolation, while tamed, remain vital to Australia's development, even in the twenty-first-century 'global village'.
