Anxious Nation: Australia and the Rise of Asia, 1850-1939

David Walker (Author) Cinema, Literature & Culture Series

The great catchcries of the day – “the awakening East,” “the yellow peril”, “populate or perish” – had a direct bearing on how Australians viewed their future. Axious Nation provides a full and fascinating account of Australia’s complex engagement with Asia.
