What happened in Australia back in 1972? Most people aren't likely to remember.

Ron Williams has created this series to record the events that made news in Australia year-by-year from 1939-1972. Each volume in the series describes the happenings that affected people, real people, and is designed to make you remember and wonder at things you'd forgotten or didn't know about. 

So what did make news in 1972? It was 'time' for a change in Federal Govenment as Whitlam brought Labor back from the dead, and in our relations with China, 'Number 96' won the TV credits, women got equal pay for equal work, and call-up of Nashos ended. Israelis were killed at the Munich Olympic Games. Plane hijackers were now being shot overseas, and car seat belts were an issue at home.

Please note this book is filled with articles from the year, not photographs.
