A Waltz with Thomas Wood : Constructing an Australian Life Graham Seal , 2010 single work criticism
— Appears in: Australian Studies , vol. 2 no. 2010;
'Thomas Wood, English composer, traveller and author, wrote the best-selling Australian travel book, Cobbers in the 1930s. His time in Australia, which included his 'discovery' of 'Waltzing Matilda', led to a complex personal and professional negotiation of national identity in which he declared himself to be 'Australian' as well as 'British'. This article briefly considers Wood's writings, experiences and attitudes in an attempt to understand how it was possible for him to make - and to believe - such an apparently unnecessary assertion.'
