Walsh, Michael JK & Andrekos Varnava, ed.

Australia and the Great War: Identity, Memory and Mythology, MUP Academic, Carlton, 2016

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.
