'This is a history of Meanjin, told in its own words...Through a selection of previously unpublished correspondence together with some of the path-breaking writings that were first published in Meanjin, this book takes us on a journey through the magazine's own tempestuous history and charts the cross-currents and conflicts of postwar politics and culture.'
