LOWENSTEIN, WENDY - Weevils in the Flour  An Oral Record of the 1930's Depression in Australia

Title: Weevils in the Flour An Oral Record of the 1930's Depression in Australia
Description: Hyland House, South Yarra, 1978. First edition. Hardcover, octavo; blue boards with silver gilt spine titling, map endpapers; 464pp. Minor wear; mildly toned and faintly spotted text block edges. Illustrated black dustwrapper. Near fine and wrapper now professionally protected by superior non-adhesive polypropylene film. This is a justly admired historical text detailing first-hand accounts from ordinary and not-so-ordinary folk living through the Great Depression of the 1930's. The cross-section of society that Lowenstein chooses to reflect this difficult period gives you a universal picture of what it must have been like living through those times. Lowenstein's socialist credentials do not hinder the extraordinary objectivity of this tale. It is a very life-affirming book about a life-affirming time in Australia's (and the world's) history.
