The Eighties: The Decade That Transformed Australia
It was the era of Hawke and Keating, Kylie and INXS, the America's Cup and the Bicentenary. It was perhaps the most controversial decade in Australian history, with high-flying entrepreneurs booming and busting, torrid debates over land rights and immigration, the advent of AIDS, a harsh recession and the rise of the New Right. In the Eighties, Frank Bongiorno brings all this and more to life.
Frank Bongiorno is associate professor of history at the Australian National University and author of the award-winning The Sex Lives of Australians.
