Up North

Edition 9

Australians have always been enchanted and threatened by the north.

Up North will change the way you think about the north of the country and the region beyond.

In major new essays and reportage it demolishes some of the most potent myths about the north, and re-evaluates our understanding of the Japanese threat during the Second World War.

This edition turns the map upside down to imagine a new integrated and reconciled future.

Moving memoirs and fiction recreate the enduring quest for the exotic as outstanding writers travel further and further north pursuing their dreams.
