BREAK­ING THE SHEEP’S BACK

Dubbo Photo News - - 33 Years As Bookseller­s -

By Charles Massy. From the re­spected au­thor of ‘The Merino’ comes this new ti­tle that tells the shock­ing true story of the de­cline and fall of the Aus­tralian wool in­dus­try. It is seen as the coun­try’s big­gest in­dus­try dis­as­ter with 40 times more funds be­ing lost in the down­fall than in the more re­cent Aus­tralian Wheat Board scan­dal. It ranges across the terms of 7 fed­eral gov­ern­ments and de­spite this po­lit­i­cally sanc­tioned col­lapse, there has not been a royal com­mis­sion, and this is the first in depth study of the cir­cum­stances. #38857 Pb 432 pages $39.95
