The historical development and changing contours of Australian culture and identity are traced through contemporary debates on nationality, Aboriginality, multiculturalism, gender, the bush legend, and suburbanism. The choice of readings, together with their presentation within the context of these key debates, provides an indispensable resource for general readers as well as students and teachers of Australian Studies. Images of Australia- An Introductory Reader in Australian Studiesis also designed for use by TV Open Learning students in association with the ABC television programs produced for the Griffith University course, Australian Studies- Images of Australia.
