Abstract

Patrick White studied the political history of northern development in Australia. With a focus on north Queensland’s local governments, this research revealed discord between local and national visions of northern development. The thesis demonstrated how local councils influenced federal policy and development in the Australian tropics between 1939 and 1969.
