Australian Cultural History is a 1988 text which opens up new ways of looking at Australian society, culture and history. The diverse and distinguished authors range across religion, literature, history, popular ideas, painting, ballet, patronage and education. The approach to culture throughout is inclusive, and pluralist - each essay extends the reader's understanding of what makes Australian culture, in a lively and provocative manner. These questions have relevance to all interested in 19th and 20th century social development.
