Australians and Globalisation: The Experience of Two Centuries
Cambridge University Press, Nov 5, 2001 - Political Science - 217 pages
Is globalisation new? Are its effects inevitable? Are the concepts of national sovereignty and global markets incompatible? In this provocative book, the authors argue that Australia has always been a 'globalised' nation. Australian Citizens and Globalisation tells the tale of how governance and citizenship developed in response to global forces, starting with colonial societies and moving through the federation period and the twentieth century to the present day with its accelerated globalisation impact.
