From the Publisher
"…a valuable addition to most academic institutions."
American Reference Books Annual
Retired from a long career at the National Library of Australia, Kepars cites and evaluates 441 references on the capital of New South Wales, the host city of the 2000 Olympic Games. He arranges them in sections on the people; guidebooks; the harbor; biographies, autobiographies, memoirs, letters, and diaries; history; flora, fauna, and geology; population, religion; society and social conditions; and other broad areas. He indexes authors and titles as well as subjects, and includes two maps. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
