The Tyranny of Distance is the classic account of how Australia's geographical remoteness has been central to shaping our history and identity - and how it will continue to form our future.

As well as being hailed as a work of enduring scholarship, The Tyranny of Distance brings our history to life. Geoffrey Blainey recounts the fascinating story of Australia's development, from Captain Cook's bold voyages and the hardships of the early settlers, through to the challenges we face in the world today.

This revised and updated edition of The Tyranny of Distance examines how distance and isolation, while tamed, have always been and will remain vital to Australia's development, even in the twenty-first century "global village".
