Geographies of Australian heritages

Auteurs :
JONES, R.
SHAW, B.J.

Description :
An any settler or post-colonial society, heritage is a complex and contested topic that involves indigenous, imperial and other migrant components. In Australia, this is compounded by the unique characteristics of the country's natural environment, the considerable diversity of its migrant intake, and the demographic and technological imbalances that exist between its indigenous and settler populations. Using à representative set of thirteen case studies, drawn from across the country's states and capital cities, this book demonstrates the range and diversity of heritage issues currently confronting Australia, and the value of adopting geographical approaches in their description, analysis and potential resolution. - (HC)
