Description - The Rise and Fall of Marvellous Melbourne by Graeme Davison

A new edition of this classic work which looks at Melbourne, among the most surburbanized of nineteenth-century cities, in its pursuit of 'suburbanism as a way of life'. Looks beyond public events to discover how the experience of boom and depression touched the lives of ordinary Melburnians, at work and at home, and reshaped their society and their sense of urban identity.
