A short history of Tasmania
This breezy mini-history of Tasmania follows Robson's A History of Tasmania, Volume I (Oxford, 1983), which was hailed by Choice as "well-written, deeply researched, and, most importatn, in no sense parochial." General readers, students, and tourists alike will enjoy this encapsulated account of Tasmania's little-known but interesting past.
