Making it National argues that we need to rethink the way national identity is constructed in Australia today. Graeme Turner takes a series of recent instances - the mythologising of Bond and the larrikin entrepreneurs, the Spycatcher trials, Maralinga and the Bicentenary - showing how popular images of national identity are used to serve specific rather than national interests. Graeme Turner's writing has remarkable power to engage its readers with all the immediacy, vividness and drama of our very best journalism, while putting cultural theory to work in new and creative ways.Meaghan MorrisMaking it National could be to the 1990s what Richard White's Inventing Australia was to the 1980s.Tony BennettInstitute for Cultural Policy Studies, Griffith University
