“The Oxford Book of Sydney is an entertaining and informative celebration of Australia’s oldest and foremost city.  Richard Hall has assembled a superbly readable and informative selection of writings that together evoke the people, places, ethnicities, cultures, and politics that have constituted our sense of this metropolis.  Sydney’s existence has been uniquely shaped by its history and geography.  Beginning with the discovery of an amenable site by Captain Cook and Joseph Banks, the place also provided the locale for a notorious penal colony that has exerted a lasting influence of the character of Sydney.  Its extraordinary geography and breathtakingly beautiful harbour were life and home to Aboriginal peoples whose interaction with the colonists set a pattern for black/white relations that continues to this day.”
