AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Maureen and I arrived on Western Australia's North-West Cape in a rather shonky New Zealand yacht in early December 1972. When we waded ashore it was the first time we had set foot in Australia and we didn't plan to stay for more than a few months. Gough Whitlam had been in power for less than a week and we had no idea that his arrival was about to shake up Australian publishing. In fact we knew nothing about publishing.We certainly had no idea that less than twelve months later we would be Australian publishers, or that more than thirty years later we would still be here, with a turnover of $100 million, three offices around the world and nearly 500 employees. ' (Introduction 105)
