A journey through Hobart--Australia's smallest, most southerly, least prosperous, but arguably most beautiful state capital--this updated edition reveals a city in transition, shaking off its dark and troubled past to claim its special place in the post-modern world. From Hobart's convict legacy, its spectacular natural setting, heritage architecture, and climate to crime rates, economic hardship, the recent disfigurements of the developers, and the opening of the Museum of Old and New Art, this book brings a wealth of fresh insights. Those who have experienced Hobart as tourists will be surprised and intrigued by the lively, complex society while residents will surely discover their city anew.
