Almost the greatest barrier to Australia's spatial history is the date 1788

Almost the greatest barrier to Australia's spatial history is the date 1788. Carter frames this history through an analysis of landscape and space, which makes this work essential reading for anyone who wants another work of theory to build from.

Carter’s model of imperial history as a form that reduces space to a stage, The Road to Botany Bay is a classic .

Carter’s model of imperial history as a form that reduces space to a stage, The Road to Botany Bay is a classic of post-colonial and or post-modern history, and it has been well worth a return visit nearly 30 years after it was first published, and nearly 20 years since I last read i.

Almost the greatest barrier to Australia’s spatial history is the date 1788. On the one side, anterior to and beyond the limits of Australian ‘history’, lies a hazy geo-historical tradition of surmise, a blank sea scored at intervals down the centuries by the prows of dug-outs, out-riggers and, latterly, three-masters; it is a ‘thick horizon’, a rewarding site of myth and speculation. East of Melbourne and north of Westernport Bay, there is an area that early maps showing aboriginal tribal divisions describe as ‘Debatable Land’. It was land that no one laid claim to, or it was land whose ownership was disputed.
