Why have the stories of the first settler societies in Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand exercised such a hold over our collective consciousness? And why is this history once again part of contemporary political and cultural debate?" "This innovative trans-Tasman collaboration explores how the founding of Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand have been remembered and reimagined over more than two centuries. At the dawn of a new century, when the facts of these cultural encounters are increasingly under challenge, the writers of Quicksands argue for a new 'Australasian' consciousness and imagine new ways to negotiate the quicksands of our national histories."--Jacket." ;
