AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In his latest work Battarbee and Namatjira, New Zealand writer Martin Edmond juxtaposes the biographies of two painters, Rex Battarbee and Albert Namatjira, as a way to explore their personal and professional relationships and to highlight the creative processes and personalities of both men. Edmond uses events in the lives of his protagonists to redefine their experiences of success and failure, creation and destruction. Their intertwined stories unfold with the inevitability of a classical Greek play – inexorable and tragic.'  (Introduction)

    'History is a broad ranging discipline. It embraces themes concerning politics and policy on the local, national and international stage to themes pertaining to the personal and mundane – life stories of individuals; histories of homes and vernacular buildings; momentin-time events that have reframed individual lives. The five articles in this issue of Northern Territory Historical Studies represent some of the themes of historical enquiry, from a distinctly Northern Territory perspective.' (Editorial Introduction)
