Australia 1880 to 1950 begins in the last decades of the 19th Century as Australia struggles to define itself as an independent nation with the British Empire. Key topics discussed are the federation of Australia, the traumatic and defining influence of World War One. The developments of the 1920s and the illusion of prosperity was terminated by the Great Depression and the profound political and social turmoil that resulted. The outbreak of the Second World War in 1939 was an even greater challenge to Australia with the threat of invasion and the global scale of the conflict. The hope of the post-war years stumbled as political and industrial divisions brought down the Labor government at the beginning of the Cold War.
