Australian history has

changed drastically over the last fifty years and has found itself at the

centre of heated and consuming public debates.

So how do historians

themselves read this history? Where do they see themselves in these momentous

shifts in historical reading and writing? With contributions from prominent

historians including Marilyn Lake, Tom Griffiths, Peter Stanley and Ann

Curthoys, Australian History Now

offers revealing and refreshing accounts of the ways Australian historians think

about the nation's past.

Australian History Now is an

engaging and often surprising introduction to the ways we understand and write

our history in academic, popular and school books, argue about it in the media,

present it in museums and watch it on television. At its heart it shows that

the way we remember our past reflects how we see ourselves in the present.
