North of Capricorn
The Untold Story of Australia's NorthBook - 2003
In this deeply human illustration of the effect race and politics has had on a country's history, Australia's inner demons of racism and intolerance are brought to light. Additionally, the themes of "racial purity" and nationalization discussed throughout the book are of immense contemporary relevance as Australia begins to cope with an increasingly integrated future. In this work, the shift in Australia's tropical northern cities is scrutinized, illustrating their transformation from diverse, thriving communities into scenes of racial strife over the course of the 19th century.
