INTRODUCING
DR JAMES BOWEN Suzanne Davies Great Banier Reef Marhe Park Authority Townsville, Queensland, Australia suzie@gbrmpa.gov.au
After graduating fiom the University of Sydney and completing a Ph.D. at the University of Illinois, James Bowen pursued an academic career in the United States, Canada and Australia, with a short sojourn in Greece.
He has published extensively in the history of ideas, education and environmental thought.
His three-volume work A History of Western Education, has been published in four international editions, and
translated into three languages. This major work has recently been republished as part of the Rutledge's Distinguished Masterwork Series.
As visiting Professional Fellow at the Australian National University fiom 1984 to 1989, he became absorbed
in the complex history of the Great Barrier Reef, exploring this over the next decade through intensive archival,
field and underwater search in collaboration with Margarita Bowen, ecologist and distinguished historian of
science. The result of that collaboration is their latest work 'The Great Barrier Reef: History, Science, Heritage.' Once published, the book received outstanding reviews, and in September 2003 James Bowen and Margarita
Bowen were awarded the prestigious New South Wales Premier's Australian History prize. The citation for the
prize descnies the book as 'a truly majestic history' and 'a compelling saga.'
