This book on Australian literature is the fruit of my thirty years of study on Australian literature and is inspired by the work of anthropologist and social scholar Riane Eisler that the international Partnership Studies Group (founded in Udine in 1998) applies to the study of world literatures in English, languages and education. The texts analysed in this book represent an interesting sample of how different Australian authors of diverse epochs share a desire to denounce the dangers of colonial/dominator/imperialism while representing another more human and caring possibility, a different, more partnership-oriented world-view.

Abstract

This book on Australian literature is the fruit of my thirty years of study on Australian literature and is inspired by the work of anthropologist and social scholar Riane Eisler that the international Partnership Studies Group (founded in Udine in 1998) applies to the study of world literatures in English, languages and education. The texts analysed in this book represent an interesting sample of how different Australian authors of diverse epochs share a desire to denounce the dangers of colonial/dominator/imperialism while representing another more human and caring possibility, a different, more partnership-oriented world-view.
