AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Bennett establishes Australia's ambivalence about its own place in the world and then examines how this 'context of a colonial and post-colonial culture in Australia' has affected the perception of Asia and the Pacific. Considering Australia's relationship with Asia, as depicted in her national literature, Bennett focuses particularly on the writings of Christopher Koch, Nicholas Jose and Brian Castro. In conclusion, Bennett states that although Australia will continue to be influenced by Europe and North America, an 'enhanced interaction with Indo-Asia-Pacific countries is already generating and will generate further beneficial changes to Australian culture and society.'
