I Wonder Whether I Belong: Manning Clark and the Politics of Australian History 1970-2000

McKenna, Mark


This article focuses on the role Manning Clark played in popularising a critical reading of Australian history, especially between the early 1970s and his death in 1991. It also discusses Clark's influence on Paul Keating, Labor Prime Minister from 1991 to 1996. Finally, it explains the antipathy of Australian conservatives towards Clark; largely in light of Clark's views concerning 'civilisation', British 'heritage' and the dispossession of Aboriginal Australia.
