The new book What a Capital Idea – Australia 1770-1901 lifts the lid off the Australian story and exposes the myths. It is the most comprehensive and accurate record of Australian history ever published.

Author, Christopher Reynolds, explains: “What a Capital Idea is not just another history book that runs through the events of Australia’s history since settlement. I thoroughly investigate the reasons for political and commercial decisions – chasing down the money trail and looking for the context and people behind events like never before.”
