AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This edition of the Queensland Review focuses on issues in the wake of the Wayne Goss Ministry, particularly as it pertains to heritage protection policies. Good intentions to initialise heritage protection led to confusion in implementation. This not only affects Queensland's older historical buildings, but the natural environment we inherit and monetise through the tourism industry. 

This issue also includes reviews of the heritage of Queensland literature, and of the art of Vida Lahey, as well as commentaries on the Criminal Justice Commission. The overarching theme is that Queensland must not only protect its history, but learn from it, in order to preserve its future.

Beyond the Brisbane Line, Vicki Dickman , Lawrie Kavanagh , Judy Kennedy , single work biography
''Beyond the Brisbane Line' was the theme of the second Public Address of an annual series organised by the Queensland Studies Centre. Held in conjunction with the Centre's annual conference, the Public Address was presented in Toowoomba on 25 November 1994. In keeping with the aim of the Public Address series, three prominent Queenslanders were invited to address an audience on a topic of contemporary importance. In 1994, this topic was the present condition and future prospects for regional Queensland, 'beyond the Brisbane Line'.' (Introduction)

[Review] The Scandalous Penton : A Biography of Brian Penton, Ken L. Goodwin , single work review
— Review of The Scandalous Penton : A Biography of Brian Penton Patrick Buckridge , 1994 single work biography ;
'Brian Penton's death at the age of 47 in 1951 was not an unmixed tragedy for either governments or newspaper workers. Many politicians bore him long-standing grudges for the invective and scorn he had heaped upon them. Many newspaper workers remembered his managerial vindictiveness in the Sydney newspaper strike of 1944. But in the longer view, Penton's contribution to Australian culture as a novelist, journalist, political commentator, advocate of freedom of expression, and newspaper editor makes it appropriate both to mourn his early death and to welcome this biography.'

[Review] A Migrant's Story : The Struggle and Success of an Italian-Australian, Warren McMillan , single work review
— Review of A Migrant's Story : The Struggle and Success of an Italian-Australian, 1920s-1960s Osvaldo Bonutto , 1963 single work autobiography ;

'A Migrant's Story by Osvaldo Bonutto is a thin volume. Even with the addition of forewords and commentaries it only runs to little more than 100 pages, but it is a story that carries a significance far weightier than its slender text.

It is first and foremost a personal story, but the details are the flesh and blood of much more than Osvaldo Bonutto's life. Reading his story we are offered insights into at least four themes of importance. These include insights into the migration process, into aspects of Australian history, into the management and mismanagement of intercultural community relations, and into the development of an Italo-Australian cultural identity.' (Introduction)

(p. 89-90)
[Review] Portraits of our Elders, Joe McDonald , single work review
— Review of Portraits of our Elders Michael Aird , single work multimedia ;

'In 1991, Michael Aird curated an exhibition of photographs taken in studios between the 1860s and 1925 of Aboriginal people living in Queensland and northern New South Wales regions. Fortunately, rather than limit the public exposure of such a unique set of images to a relatively brief display at the Queensland Museum, he later combined those photographs with others from personal collections to create this special, intimate publication Portraits of our Elders. While a selective rather than comprehensive view of photographs of the period, this collection presents a series of compelling portraits of individuals who indeed 'look beyond the situation they are in' (vii) and encourage us to do the same.' (Introduction)
