In the year that marks the centenary of the battle at Gallipoli and the seventieth anniversary of the end of World War II, Griffith Review 48: Enduring Legacies switches the focus from the battles to the long shadow of the great wars of the twentieth century.
In Enduring Legacies, eminent Australian and New Zealand historians challenge myths and reveal forgotten truths about the consequences of these wars, and popular writers flesh out the lingering human and social impact of conflict.
Contributors include John Clarke, Clare Wright, Peter Stanley, Greg Lockhardt, Cory Taylor, Paul Ham, Meredith McKinney, Jenny Hocking, Frank Bongiorno and Gerhard Fischer.
