"No Regrets in the Evening of Life” covers Junction Park State School's 125 year history; however, it is a much larger community study in the local history of the Annerley-South Brisbane districts, and a socio-political history of Queensland primary school education; with over 150,000 words, and over 1,400 endnotes. The book, in various details, addresses the intersection of 83 historical topics and this unique primary school. It promises to change the way local history is thought about in Queensland, with its precise argument that local history needs to be understood in the shaping influences between local, regional, and global contexts.
