Description - Australia to Z by Armin Greder

'Australia to Z - an alphabet book, but not one for the young and teaching them their letters. Instead Armin Greder has cast his critical eye on us and our symbols.' Libby Gleeson

'Disquieting and potent - a 'gloves off' account of Australian nationhood, and how we, as a culture, might appear to those from other cultures. This is a profoundly significant work which will - like Greder's The Island and The City - provoke, disturb and challenge the reader's perception of what it means to be Australian, and what it means to be a global citizen.' Dr Robyn Sheahan-Bright
