In Search of Hobart
Exploring the city of Hobart, Tasmania, from a personal view, resident Peter Timms builds a lively, evocative and sometimes highly critical picture of Hobart today. The narrative deftly interweaves the views and opinions of residents and visitors--from the early convicts to the current mayor--with press reports and literary references to uncover how the city has developed over the past 200 years, how its sometimes brutal past has helped shape its special character, and what it is like to live in a small city on an island so far from the rest of Australia and the world. By thoughtfully examining Hobart's architectural and planning history, cultural life, economy, and, above all, its people, this thorough exploration helps explain why Hobart is changing in the ways it is and what its future might hold.
