This account of the colony of South Australia was a semi-official publication, having been 'published under the authority of the South Australian government' for the Great International Exhibition of 1862 held in London.
Written only 26 years after proclamation this book gives an accurate account of the facts of South Australian colonisation along with an interesting presentation of the social and political issues present in the colony over this time period.
The book reports on and analyses many areas of the state's history including: its early history, constitutional & political changes, geography, immigration, professional & labour classes, Adelaide, mines, religion & education, public works & institutions and the Real Property Act.
This CD-book offers a detailed historical and political perspective of the colony of South Australia from exploration to 1862.
