FALS: Monograph No 11: Place, Region and Community by Bruce Bennett
Place, Region and Community by Bruce Bennett, 1985
How important is place in Australia? Does it matter? What difference does it make if I write, or speak, from Townsville or Perth or Alice Springs; or from Esperance, or from the edge of Lake Disappointment? Do these names mean any more than squiggles of writing on a map? What influences, what associations do they have for you, for me? Does place count any more?
