“Foreword: This is the third edition and fifth printing of my late father’s well-known work: What’s In A Name? For more than 80 years it has been the principal published source of the history of South Australian place names. Breezily, entertainingly, and authoritatively, it discloses the origins of the names of nearly 4000 of our cities, towns, islands and other geographical features. It has long been the standard work in its field. This new and attractively priced edition will now bring it within reach of everyone interested in his or her cultural heritage – Stewart Cockburn.”
