In the same vein as the Robert Cowley book on British hypothetical histories, 'What If?' asks the questions about Australia's past. Leading Australian historians including Stuart Macintyre, Marilyn Lake and Ann Curthoys present counterfactual history. This collection of twelve essays considers several alternative scenarios in Australian history. What if France had colonised part of Australia in the eighteenth century? What if Australia had become a republic at federation? What if Gough Whitlam's government had been re-elected after the Dismissal? What if Aboriginal Australians had been granted citizenship much earlier? 'What If?' asks how our history has been written, what our nation has become, and what it yet might be.
