More Description

Explores the issue of Australia's ongoing difficulties in establishing an independent national identity. He then traces these difficulties to what he identifies as 'unresolved issues' in Australian society inherited from the colonial days, including the 'hybrid' political system, a hostility to non-Europeans, resistance to reconciliation, the rejection of multiculturalism, the ongoing degradation of the natural environment, and a lack of serious engagement with Asian and Pacific countries despite our geographic proximity.
