In the past quarter century, Australia has become fully integrated into the globalizing world. Adjacent to the explosive economies of Southeast Asia, Australia has become even more connected to Anglo-American culture. Of greatest importance its population has grown increasingly diverse. Anthony Moran traces the development of contemporary Australian society in the global age, focusing on four major themes: settler/indigenous relations; economics and culture since the 1980s and their impact on national identity; the effects of increasing diversity fostered by globalization; and the transformation of Australian social space wrought by globalization. The book is ideal for students studying globalization, Australia and Southeast Asia's place in the wider world. Books in this series look at how nations and regions across the world are navigating the tumultuous currents of globalization. Concise, descriptive, interdisciplinary, and theoretically informed, they serve as ideal introductions to the peoplesand places of our increasingly globalized world.
