In recent decades, the past has become the subject of debate in the public sphere - history is no longer the rendering of  shared heritage, but an ideological battleground where rival interpretations of the past compete for attention and influence.  This is particularly evident in Australia and Ireland, where deeply rooted civic divisions have producd alternative conceptions of nationhood. 

The essays address topical issues such as how war is remembered and commemorated - particularly the changing national myths surrounding Anzac Day and the Easter Rising: government apologies for harms done by previous generations - to the Stolen Generations and state apologies for institutional and religious child sexual abuse.
