Which Writer Wrote ANSWER

Most new nations go through the formality of inventing a national identity, but Australia has long supported a whole industry of image-makers to tell us what we are.

Richard White is responsible for this week’s WWW quote.  His ‘Inventing Australia’ is included in my 1992 edition of Images of Australia (UQP), edited by Gillian Whitlock and David Carter.  It is a terrific collection of writings around questions of national identity.
