THE HISTORY OF MELBOURNE THROUGH THE EYES OF A NEWSPAPER INDEX

Professor John Hirst is scholar emeritus at La Trobe University and Editor in Chief of the Argus Index Project. He is also the author of many books, most recently Sense and Nonsense in Australian History, Looking for Australia, and The Shortest History of Europe.
