Description

The 'History Wars' have come to dominate discussion of Australian history in recent years, playing out over various national sites of celebration and commemoration. Anna Clark examines the place of school history in these disputes over the past, and suggests their partisan historical divide is complicated in the schools arena, where debate has been increasingly contested over 'our children', the nation's future.
