Mark Mckenna writes that Australia is on the brink of momentous change – though only if its citizens and politicians can come to new terms with the past. Indigenous recognition and a new push for a republic await action. But is Is there a way beyond the history wars that began under John Howard? And in an age of free-floating fears about the global, digital future, is history any longer relevant, let alone equal to the task of grounding the nation? In this inspiring essay, McKenna considers the frontier, the Anzac legacy and deep time. He drags some fascinating new scholarship into the light, and pushes the debate about history beyond the familiar polarities.
