History Australia, vol 12, issue 3, 2015 out now

As AHA members, you will know that History Australia, vol 12, no 3, 2015 is now available online.

As we mourn the passing of Professor Geoffrey Bolton we publish an article by Lyndon Megarrity on one of Professor Bolton’s earliest works, A Thousand Miles Away (1963), his ground-breaking history of North Queensland. As Megarrity shows, Bolton’s work was highly significant for the writing of the history of North Queensland undertaken by researchers at James Cook University, but it also had wider significance for regional history in Australia as an exemplar for scholars working on other places.
