Australia and the Great War : Identity, Memory and Mythology
The events of the Great War intensified the relationship between the British Empire and Australia; the legacy can still be felt today. Australia and the Great War explores both the immediate and long-term consequences of the war on this complex relationship, looking in particular at identity, history, gender, propaganda, economics and nationalism. This multidisciplinary collection of essays unveils the creation and subsequent [mis]use of histories and mythologies while considering the necessity and nature of both remembering, and forgetting, war.
