Although a history of Junction Park State School, it is a larger 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.

The book is available on sale from the Junction Park History website or through the Junction Park State School (+61 7 34264333).
