About the Author

Erika Esau is a native Californian who spent more than a decade teaching art history--including the history of Australian art--at the Australian National University, Canberra. Her writings on Australian art and culture include the Blue Guide Australia (with George Boeck) and E.O. Hoppe's Australia (with Graham Howe). Images of the Pacific Rim is part of the four-book series Australian Studies in Art and Art Theory and is published with the assistance of the Getty Foundation and the Nelson Meers Foundation.


It is a book which opens fresh perspectives as one muses on the impact of Hollywood on Australian cinema and, later, on the effect on Australian culture of the flood of American pop culture from California.

Impeccable scholarship and beautiful illustrations convincingly equates the material culture of commercial promotion that encouraged the settlement of the antipodes and the Golden State. An intriguing and novel topic made accessible and compelling. This lovely volume will appeal to readers on many levels.

Comparisons between historical and cultural developments in Australia and the American West/California are frequently made, but this is the first significant study to examine the eclectic and symbiotic nature of the aesthetic exchange between the two evolving frontier regions. Summing up: Recommended.
