Nick Brodie is a professional history nerd. He has a doctorate in late medieval vagrancy, worked as a field archaeologist, taught at university for a decade, and now writes a growing suite of acclaimed popular histories. Nick loves mysteries, lateral thinking, and books that are erudite and accessible. Covering the broad sweep of Australian history in 1787: The Lost Chapters of Australia's Beginnings; Kin: A Real People's History of Our Nation and The Vandemonian War, Nick brings fresh angles to old tales.
"A fascinating and important book" Troy Lennon, Daily
"Nick Brodie achieves this (dogged research) with stunning scholarship in The Vandemonian War." Stephen Fitzpatrick, The Weekend Australian, Review
"The Vandemonian War is an admirable piece of scholarship. The depth of research is evident on every page, and it seems likely that fellow historians will build upon Brodie's work for years to come." The Saturday Paper
