Land of Vision and Mirage: A History of Western Australia since 1826
Written by emeritus professor Geoffrey Bolton, Land of Vision and Mirage vibrantly narrates the social, cultural, political and economic development of the most geographically isolated area in the world. The evolution of popular WA institutions, such as BankWest, the Royal Automotive Club, the University of Western Australia and the West Coast Eagles all make for an interesting read, as do Bolton’s wry observations on the current mining boom and the emergence of western entrepreneurship.
