    In Australia’s rush to commemorate all
    things Anzac, have we lost our ability to look beyond war as the central pillar
    of Australia’s history and identity?


    The
    passionate historians of the Honest History group argue that while war has been
    important to Australia – mostly for its impact on our citizens and our ideas of
    nationhood – we must question the stories we tell ourselves about our history.
    We must separate myth from reality – and to do that we need to reassess the
    historical evidence surrounding military myths.


    In
    this lively collection, renowned writers including Paul Daley, Mark McKenna,
    Peter Stanley, Carolyn Holbrook, Mark Dapin, Carmen Lawrence, Stuart Macintyre, Frank Bongiorno
    and Larissa Behrendt explore not only the militarisation of our history but the
    alternative narratives swamped under the khaki-wash – Indigenous history,
    frontier conflict, multiculturalism, the myth of egalitarianism, economics and
    the environment.
