What made news in Australia in 1951? In 1951, the coal miners funds were declared black. The great mower war disturbed Sundays peace. General MacArthur was given the boot. Hire purchase was buying vacuum cleaners. Sunday films and sport were driving clergy frantic, and farmers were hopping mad over a kangaroo glut.  

This is one in a series of year-by-year books that highlight the social history happenings in Australia at that time. Arranged chronologically by month, Ron Williams has worked his way through newspapers, magazines and other sources and has come up with most of the major events that occurred during the year.

Each volume in the series describes the happenings that affected people, real people, and is designed to make you remember and wonder at things forgotten.They're also designed to get the older and younger generations talking about the past to rediscover heritage that otherwise would be forgotten.
