Cultural Heritage in National Parks:
bibliography of a debate in Australian national park history,
from the mid-1970s to the early 1990s (1995).


The right of Bruce Baskerville to be identified as the moral rights author of this work is hereby asserted in accordance with the Copyright Amendment (Moral Rights) Act 2000 of the Commonwealth of Australia.

This bibliography was compiled as part of the research on my draft Ph D thesis at Macquarie University, Sydney NSW. The thesis remains incomplete.

A decade later the list features a bias towards the publications of community groups, popular conservation and scientific magazines, and professional journals. Noticeably absent are official publications and academic papers. I don't remember noticing the bias at the time. Three of the articles particularly influenced my thinking at the time: Gamble, Hodges and Walters, especially Hodges.
