    y separately published work icon Queensland Review vol. 12 no. 1 2005 Z1224018 2005 periodical issue 'This issue of Queensland Review coincides with the death of Queensland's longest serving and most controversial Premier, Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen. For many Queenslanders, this event provided an opportunity to reflect on the 'Joh era', and to consider how Queensland has changed since it came to an end in 1987. As Sandy McCutcheon's Australia Talks Back program on the legacy of Sir Joh demonstrated, the former Premier continues to divide Queenslanders. 1 The post-mortem reflections on Sir Joh have, however, brought into sharp relief a change in perceptions of the state of Queensland from within as well as without. The dismissive characterisation of Queensland as Australia's 'cultural desert' has been replaced by a new interest in the state's distinctive history and its future directions. The work published here exemplifies· the way in which research into Queensland's local and regional specificities and histories now engages robustly with broader national and international debates.'
