  1. On 26 January 1788 a bunch of old white men arrived in Australia and started ruining it for everyone. 240 years later, Australia is a completely different country, still being ruined by old white men. The Chaser Quarterly has compiled a diverse array of Australia’s least eminent historians, Charles Firth (The Chaser), James Schloeffel (The Shovel) and Cameron Smith (chaser.com.au). The Completely True History of Australia is the definitive account of the white, male perspective on history. As such, even though it completely ignores most of the people and cultures that went into making Australia the nation it is today, it will no doubt be studied in schools for generations to come. Perfect reading for anyone who wants a reason to be angry at white men in Australia. Includes- - Complete Timeline of the last 60,000 years of Australian History - Foreword by David Hunt, author of Girt - The Prehistory of Australia - An account of Bennelong’s invasion of England - New evidence about the ‘disappearance of Harold Holt’ - Stunning new revelations about the sacking of Whitlam … and much much more.

  2. Dame Edna Everage, Australia’s most famous – and funniest – export, tells the history of her homeland in 100 objects. It’s very rare that we see the emergence of a completely original idea in the world of books. Dame Edna Everage’s masterly history of Australian civilization is one such idea, and, possums, you will never think of historical writing in the same way again. ‘From our dainty gum nuts and towering Uluru to our world-class sharks and Opera House, marauding possums and poets, taking in game-changing inventions such as the dual-flush toilet and zinc cream, you will be amazed at what our sunburnt country has contributed to modern civilization.’ Barbies. Bex powders. Bogans. Feral Koalas. The immortal pink Lamington, Australia’s contribution to world patisserie. Plastic banknotes. Thongs, Uggs and utes. Not to speak of the Great Barrier Reef, goon and Nellie Melba. One of the world’s most distinguished thinkers and cultural personalities, Dame Edna Everage has inspired generations of Australian artists and icons, from Germaine Greer and Peter Carey to Kylie Minogue and Shane Warne.

  6. In this side-splitting sequel to his bestselling history, David Hunt takes us to the Australian frontier. This was the Wild South, home to hardy pioneers, gun-slinging bushrangers, directionally challenged explorers, nervous indigenous people, Caroline Chisholm and sheep. Lots of sheep. True Girt introduces Thomas Davey, the hard-drinking Tasmanian governor who invented the Blow My Skull cocktail, and Captain Moonlite, Australia’s most famous LGBTI bushranger. Meet William Nicholson, the Melbourne hipster who gave Australia the steam-powered coffee roaster and the world the secret ballot. And say hello to Harry, the first camel used in Australian exploration, who shot dead his owner, the explorer John Horrocks. Learn how Truganini’s death inspired the Martian invasion of Earth. Discover the role of Hall and Oates in the Myall Creek Massacre. And be reminded why you should never ever smoke with the Wild Colonial Boy and Mad Dan Morgan. If Manning Clark and Bill Bryson were left on a desert island with only one pen, they would write True Girt.

  7. The Chaser’s Australia is a comprehensive guide to the culture, history, politics, religion, fashion, media and the few remaining footy heroes not currently facing criminal charges, that have made Australia one of the Top 196 countries in the world today. Featuring fewer facts than an Andrew Bolt column, and more offensive claims than a George Pell’s testimony, this definitive volume is the perfect companion volume to a proper book about Australia. The Chaser’s Australia is a special bumper issue of The Chaser Quarterly. It is written by Chaser writers Mark Humphries (The Roast, The Feed) and Evan Williams (The Roast, The Feed, The New Yorker) with contributions from Chris Taylor and Charles Firth (The Chaser), James Schloeffel (The Shovel) and Rohan Arneil (the intern). It is the perfect Fathers Day gift for dads who are fans of The Chaser and who are also able to read. And perfect for reading when the battery of your smartphone goes flat. The book is the most comprehensive guide to Australia ever compiled, and is divided into six hilarious sections- Politics, History, The Nation, Sport & Religion, Culture & Media and People. “Our religion section covers all the major denominations- AFL, NRL, Soccer, Cricket, even lawn bowls,” said Editor-In-Chief, Charles Firth.
