The existing literature on the experience of Australia and Australians in wars is surprisingly vast. Also in time of peace, particularly before the First World War, there have been vigorous episodes in the national defence debate which are well documented but in sources which are frequently difficult to discover. This volume attempts to survey and list the major historical sources in these fields, both official and non-official, for the period 1891-1939, the years which will be spanned by Volumes 7-12 of the Australian Dictionary of Biography. Its contents cover the pre-Federation debates on defence questions, the South African War, and the Boxer Rebellion, the development of Australia's national defence policy 1901-1914, the First World War and the discussions of defence issues between the two World Wars.
