Further information:
"The six poems titled ‘Instant History’ are a response to the first and second invasions of Iraq, in the late 1900s and early 2000s. Terms such as ‘shock and awe’, ‘pink mist’ and ‘data smog’ were generated by this potential debacle, where the imposition of military might causes more problems than it solves. The poster inside the folded pages is a direct copy of a street banner published by the Newcastle Herald in March 2003, showing an Australian soldier in supposed attack readiness." Richard Tipping
