“The reach of the book is impressive, the topics covered truly remarkable. This is due to the number and range of the collaborators – well over fifty of them all with expertise in their chosen subject. What a tribute it represents to the local historical community!”
(Henry Reynolds from the Foreword)
“This book builds on John Reynolds’ single authored Launceston: History of an Australian City. I have come to appreciate what a good urban history it was. The book ends in 1969, but there is little material after 1945. Thus there is great room to extend Reynolds without supplanting his work.”
