“Australians use the phrase ‘this side of the black stump’ to sum up the places, people and activities within which and amongst whom they feel most at home.  By contrast, ‘beyond the black stump’ refers to far-distant locations, and to goings-on that appear marginal to most Australians.
Australian history has largely been written about ‘this side of the black stump’.  It reflects the preoccupations of the capital cities and the coastal plains.  Beyond the Black Stump provides a different perspective.  Its contributors explore the hidden histories of people and places in the Australian outback, revealing a vast inland corridor of social movement and interaction that has played a central role in shaping the Australian nation”
