Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is a most welcome addition to the Australian literature generally and will be particularly well received by both historians and geographers working on a wide range of topics concerning our continent. Powell's book truly spans the two disciplines, disciplines which he correctly identifies as almost inseparable in the Australian context." Australian Geographer

"...an original, thoughtful perspective on the origins and evolution of some major public debates and policies guiding Australian development since 1880...This book will have a major impact. It provides a basic key not only to the most significant published research of a leading Australian geographer, but also to the articulation and implementation of resource-based public policies and programmes in Australia over the last century." Australian Geographical Studies
