Brief description Australian history has been revised and reinterpreted by successive generations of historians, writers, governments and public commentators. Yet there has been no systematic attempt to trace Australian historiography from its earliest origins to the contests dominating public historical discussion today. 'Imagining the National Story' responds to this critical gap in Australian historical research and proposes a bold and expansive history that examines the changing and contested project of Australia’s national story for the first time. In doing so, it will make a significant contribution to Australian historical scholarship and our understanding of the practice of history itself.
