Donald Horne on How I Came to Write The Lucky Country by Donald Horne

Book Description

The publication in 1964 of "The Lucky Country" changed the way that Australians thought about themselves. Its fresh and penetrating critique of the Australian way of life, both private and public, confirmed its author Donald Horne's status as a leading figure in Australian intellectual life, and is still influential four decades on. MUP republishes an extract from Horne's memoirs that recalls both critically and nostalgically the personal and public circumstances, which led him to write "The Lucky Country".

Books By Author Donald Horne

Lucky Country by Donald Horne Lucky Country, Paperback (June 2009)

First published in 1964, the book was a wake-up call to an unimaginative nation, an indictment of a country mired in mediocrity and manacled to its past. Valuable not only as a source of continuing truths and revealing snapshots of the past, but above all as a key to understanding the anxieties and discontents of Australian society today.
