Description

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.show more
