20 Dec 2005
Pearson Education Australia
For undergraduate courses in Australian studies, history, cultural history and cultural studies.
Dispossession, Dreams and Diversity: issues in Australian studies introduces key topics and questions about Australia as a society, a culture and a nation. It engages in major debates within both the academic and public spheres of political discourse and cultural representations, and outlines both historical and theoretical approaches to these.
The text examines the social or historical contexts that influence the meanings and structures of 'Australianness', and provides both background detail and further discussion of many issues that can often be covered only briefly in the limited time allowed for lectures and seminars.
