On the Frontier: a Social History of Liverpool
On the Frontierpublished in 1996 ‘ a frontier, a staging post, an edge between the city and the bush, between what mattered and what didn’t. The story of Liverpool is very much a story of adjustment to change. On the Frontier traces the rise, the fall and the resurgence of the town of Liverpool. It is decidedly a social history, eliciting the human, the local and the community reactions to these wider developments. Because of Liverpool’s complex relationships with Sydney this book is also written with an emphasis on the regional implications of growth and change in the Sydney Basin. The Liverpool story provides a revealing local study of many of the major developments in Australian history.
