Summary


How has militarisation come to define Australian valour? Why has the long shadow of World War I dominated our sense of patriotism?

ON PATRIOTISM explores what it really means to love and serve your country. Paul Daley contemplates ways to escape the cultural binds that tie us to Anzac, British settlement and flag-waving.

'Straight from the heart and deeply informed. With Indigenous culture at its centre, Paul Daley has given us a patriotism for the twenty-first century.' PROFESSOR MARK McKENNA
