This superb collection of essays represents a significant rethinking of received ideas on identity, and reveals how issues of identity lie at the heart of Australian political thought, and form the foundation of Australian society and culture. It provides a comprehensive introduction to the political discourse surrounding Australian identity through a consideration of key themes. The book rejects many assumptions underlying contemporary political debates, including the promulgation of a singular national identity in historical fact or as a political goal.
