Abstract

This commissioned history of the Hobart City Council written by two Hobart-born historians describes the role of the people - aldermen, municipal officers and members of pressure groups - who have played a large part in municipal life over 154 years. The authors explore controversies and battles, achievements and failures as well as periods of progress and regress, boom and bust.
