(p.181) Chapter 10 Doing U.S. History in Australia
Historians across Borders

Ian Tyrrell

University of California Press

This brief chapter in part 4 is one of the commentaries on the volume, in this case by a leading Australian scholar, one who has been involved in the “internationalizing” of U.S. history. The first section of the essay outlines the context of the social production of historical scholarship in Australia, discussing its evolution in the light of the European experience as portrayed in the preceding chapters. The second section uses comparison between the Australian historiography of American history and European equivalents to draw out presences and absences in the European case.
