""Paper Nation" will stand with Tim Bonyhady's "The Colonial Earth" as two of the most intelligent and insightful contributions made to the discussion of colonial attitudes towards the Australian continent. Informed by an acute theoretical perspective and supported by a sensitive and detailed reading of the Atlas, "Paper Nation" makes itself an indispensable contibutor to the understanding of this period in Australian history." --"JAS Review of Books"
