The Fatal Shore: The Epic of Australia's Founding Reviews

  • Chris Gager

    Time for some non-fiction. This book is a big 'un - 600 pages w/o the notes - but it's been very well written so far. I know very little about the early history of Australia beyond watching "Botany Bay" on TV years ago and reading about the Transportation(of convicts) and Resettlement(of other sad sack poor people) in Dickens("David Copperfield" and "Great Expectations"). I read Bill Bryson's fun book about the Land Down Under and have seen plenty of Aussie films over the years. That's about it ...more

    When I was at school, we were taught that most of the convicts transported to Australia were decent but unfortunate people, who were sent here unfairly, usually for petty and justifiable crimes like stealing handkerchiefs, or loaves of bread to feed their starving families. It turns out that's not quite true, and there's no avoiding the fact that the fledgling nation of Australia was built in significant part by hardened criminals. Of course the story is complicated, and The Fatal Shore tells th ...more

    This is a book I’ve been meaning to get to for years. I listened to this as an audio book, but about half way through it became very clear that I was going to need to buy the damn thing.

    Kids in Australian schools – both when I was growing up and also now from talking to my daughters – tend to learn basically bugger all about Australian History. You know, kids are told something about Captain Cook, maybe a bit about the fact that there were convicts (although generally they are told these were m

    Amazing book. I'm always on the lookout for well-written histories, and this one kept surfacing in various lists and blogs and amazon searches. So when I stumbled on it at our local used bookstore, I decided to try it. Hughes' history of colonial Australia is gut-wrenching, exhausting, and superbly written. I don't know what's more astounding--the fact that Britain transported so many convicts 14,000 miles around the world to this remote continent they hadn't even mapped or explored, or that the ...more

    Millenni di pace e fatti-propri e poi il Governo inglese decide di liberarsi in modo definitivo di quel che definisce la feccia della società e va a prendere possesso di un territorio che fa di tutto per ributtarli a mare, ma loro indomiti resistono, anche se non riescono a distruggere del tutto una civiltà composita che era riuscita a integrarsi perfettamente in un ambiente ostile, e che non aveva visto invasori fino al 1770 (in Tasmania gli inglesi avranno più successo, e in stile Haiti, non r ...more

    Mi piacciono i libri che hanno per tema viaggi, avventure per mare, scoperte, incontri (e spesso scontri) con culture diverse e sconosciute, ambientazioni per noi “esotiche”: alcuni esempi (fra le letture migliori) sono la “trilogia degli schiavi” di Hansen, la “trilogia di Haiti” di Bell, Il cimitero del Batavia di Dash, i saggi e i romanzi sulla conquista del Messico.

    Anche questo saggio di Robert Hughes, The Fatal Shore (pubblicato in Italia da Adelphi col titolo La riva fatale), ha per argome

    Although “The Pogues” used the phrase for an album title, the term “Rum, Sodomy & the Lash” is actually from an abbreviated quote by Winston Churchill while describing British Naval tradition. It also fits well with the founding of Australia although it could also include ‘deprivation, misery, cruelty and ignorance’.

    I spent a long time reading "The Fatal Shore", partly because it is pretty long, but also because the writing is excellent enough to savor at a measured pace. My understanding of

    In which Mr Hughes destroys most of the myths Australians tell ourselves, whether conservative ("we're not really descended from convicts") or, more usually, progressive ("the convicts were mostly political refugees"... nope. "The convicts and the indigenous peoples worked together to..." nope.) And does it in a highly entertaining narrative. It really isn't over-rated, though it is, perhaps, overlong.
