Darian-Smith, K and Hamilton, P, Memory and History in Twentieth Century Australia, Oxford University Press, Melbourne, pp. 255. ISBN 9780195535693 (1994) [Edited Book]

Abstract

This book examines the relationship between memory, history and the competing narratives of identity, place, and gender in Australian society. Focusing particularly on popular culture, wars, and such specific events as the Bubonic Plague of 1900 and the measles epidemic of the 1950s, these essays open up Australia's past in radically different ways and demonstrate the centrality of memory to the writing of history.
