Australia: Missed Opportunities and Might Have Beens

Mission statement: To dicuss matters relating to Australian history since 1945 in the light of initiatives and innovations that failed to eventuate or ended up underutilised, policies that went unimplemented or were introduced and subsequently whiteanted and social attitudes that were selectively reinforced or deliberately ignored.

Black Armband? What Black Armband? sets out to orient the rest of the content in the context of the so-called History Wars.

The Broad Sweep of Australian History sets out to give credit where credit is due and identify events, themes and attitudes that relate to subsequent chapters.
