Australia and the Great War
Varnava, Edited by Michael JK Walsh and
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 longterm 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.
