Geoffrey Bolton was the most versatile and widely travelled of his generation of Australian historians. As a scholar, teacher, and commentator he enriched understanding of the country's regional mosaic, including some of its notable figures (and others who were just as revealing), the natural environment, social patterns, and political life. He was also unflagging in his encouragement of others. The contributors to this volume take his work as a departure point for their original essays on a variety of themes in Australian history. Contributors include Stuart Macintyre, Jenny Gregory, Lenore Layman, Carol Bolton, Mark McKenna, Graeme Davison, Carl Bridge, Alan Atkinson, Andrew Gaynor, Tom Griffiths, Tim Rowse, Lizzy Watt, Mary Anne Jebb and Pat Jalland.
