Editorial Reviews

History Australia: vol 1: 2010 - Alice Garner
'Lyon's absorbing collection of essays explores the place and meanings of reading and writing in the lives of various 'reading communities'... This volume offers a fascinating introduction both to his development as a historian and to the various ways we might hear from 'actual readers', as opposed to the 'imagined' readers of reception theory.'
