The Born in... series consists of 32 books covering life in Australia in each year from 1939-70.

Author Ron Williams, a retired teacher, mathematician, computer man, political scientist, farmer and writer, spent many hours in front of a computer reading electronic versions of newspapers, magazines, Hansard, ministers' press releases and the like to compile the series.

"My task was to sift out, day by day, those stories and events that would be of interest to most readers," he said.

Books in the series are $19.99 each (paperback); hard cover editions are available for the 1940, 1950, 1960 and 1970 editions (RRP $24.99 each).

Available from selected newsagents and bookstores or www.booktopia.com.au
