Join Graham Wilcox as he discusses his book, The Struggle for Unity: A Story of Federation of Australia.

  Australia is the world’s largest island. It is the world’s only habitable continent isolated from other continents. It is the world’s largest country without land borders. It has one national government. But it almost did not! Had the Queensland people not crossed the line by voting Yes in their referendum, it would have become a separate nation on the continent. That Queenslanders were persuaded to make the vital vote was attributable to the untiring efforts of one man, Queensland Attorney-General Arthur Rutledge. His vision was for one nation without international borders, his “Grand Island Continent”. This is his story.
