AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'As a genre, the western springs from colonial tension: tension between the old ways and the new; between the native people and an invading population; between humans and the land itself, between lore and the law. There are no westerns set in Britain. And while the gun-slinging adventures of cowboy frontiersmen have receded into the background of American culture, the genre remains ripe with critical and narrative potential for more freshly colonised countries like Australia.'

    'Welcome to the August issue of ABR – an unusually long issue full of reviews, literary news, and creative writing, including the three stories shortlisted in the ABR Elizabeth Jolley Short Story Prize, to be announced on August 13. Our shortlisted authors are C.J. Garrow, Simone Hollander, and Mykaela Saunders. Happily, the Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund – a long-time supporter of ABR – has enabled us to expand our commentary material with a most welcome grant. This month we lead with a major article by historian Georgina Arnott on the legacies of British slavery and their implications for Australia. James Ley laments the federal governments vendetta against the arts, the ABC, and the humanities. And Kieran Pender writes about the legal profession’s #MeToo moment in the wake of the Dyson Heydon revelations.' (Publication introduction)
