Making it National

This text brings the debate on Australian nationalism into the 1990s. No longer is nationalism linked to a monolithic Anglo-Celtic tradition: this much has been learnt after a decade of multiculturalism. But as Australia moves slowly towards declaring itself a republic, what shape does its national identity take? Turner looks at the upheavals of the 1980s: the business boom and bust; "Spycatcher"; Maralinga; the Bicentenary; and Australia's relationship with USA, and uncovers the ways in which nationalism is being constructed today. Graeme Turner is the author of "National Fictions", co-author of "Myths of Oz" and co-editor of "Australian Television and Media in Australia".
