Formatted Abstract/Summary "There have been earlier memoirs by Australians about their time in the Territory, at least 200 in a recent tally, and these tell one side of the story of colonial rule. However, a critical, distanced consciousness of the legacy of service, of relationships with Papua New Guineans, of the Australian-ness that was unconsciously (and deliberately) imposed, and of the maturation of the children of families that served in the Territory, was not addressed until Susan Cochrane set out to narrate her own inheritance. There should be more books like this -- scholarly but readable books about Australians who represented Australia on the colonial frontier." Dr. A. M. (Max) Quanchi
