Review: Weevils In The Flour: An Oral Record Of The 1930's Depression In Australia

User Review  - Fiona - Goodreads

Probably the best book on the Depression, due to the invaluable oral testimonies. A bit too strident with the Marxism sometimes, rather Victoria heavy, and not enough women. But a seriously huge compendium, that will live forever. Read full review

Review: Weevils In The Flour: An Oral Record Of The 1930's Depression In Australia

User Review  - Luthien - Goodreads

If you are going to read one book about the Great Depression in Australia, read this. It is the best source of information on what life was like for ordinary people in Australia in the 1920s and 1930s. Read full review
