|Title:||Australian economic development in the nineteenth century|
|Author(s):||Jackson, R. V|
|Publisher:||Canberra : Australian National University Press|
The book is a comprehensive survey of nineteenth-century economic development in Australia. Lucidly written and with extensive illustrations, the text deals with fundamental aspects of development - population, export and the balance of payments, transport, urbanisation, manufacturing, money and banking - set against a broad outline of development to 1900 and with a valuable chapter on the role of government in the economy. Written by a practical teacher and designed for readers without formal training in economics or statistics, this book will be as valuable to general historians as it will be to students of economic history in schools or at university.
