9781742233185: Canberra (The City Series)

An exploration of the city Australians love to hate, this book shows that there is more to the capital of Australia than politics, geometrically designed roads, and mid-century architecture. Canberra is a city of orphans: people arrive temporarily for work, but stay when they discover the unanticipated promise and opportunity Canberra has to offer. From the lake and its forgotten suburbs—traces of which can still be found on Burley Griffin’s banks—to the mountains that surround the city, this account also examines the unsavory early life of Canberra and the graveyard at St. John’s, where the pioneers rest.

Book Description UNSW Press, Australia, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book. An implicit sense of public service and `otherness has now come to permeate Canberra s identity to a point that there is a great smugness, arrogance even, that the rest of Australia can hate us - but they ll never know how good it is to live here. Canberra is a city of orphans. People arrive temporarily for work, but stay on because they discover unanticipated promise and opportunity in a city that the rest of the country loathes, but can t really do without. Daley s Canberra begins and ends at the lake and its forgotten suburbs, traces of which can still be found on Burley Griffin s banks. It meanders through the cultural institutions that chronicle the unsavoury early life of Canberra, the graveyard at St John s where the pioneers rest and the mountains that surround the city. In Canberra, people don t ask you where you went to school, as they do in Melbourne, or where your house is and how much you paid for it, as they do in Sydney. They ask you where you ve come from. And how long you re going to stay. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9781742233185
