Australian Book Review (ABR) has had two versions. The
first was edited by Max Harris and Rosemary Wighton and was published in Adelaide
from 1961-74. It was published monthly to 1971, then quarterly. The second, published
by the National Book Council with the assistance of various sponsors, began in
1978. It was edited by John McLaren until 1986, followed by Kerryn Goldsworthy
and then by Louise Adler. The editor from 1989 - 2001 was Rosemary Sorensen, and
since 2001 it has been edited by Peter Rose. In 2005 ABR formed a partnership
with Flinders University.
