About the Book:-

Over the last century and a half the competing  merits of withdrawal  from and connection  to  Asia—and  the  related   vocabularies   of  separation   and engagement—have been defining themes  in Australian history. Experiencing Turbulence   brings  together   a  selection  of  publications  on  Australian representation of Asia, published in various journals and books in the last ten years that follow the publication of Anxious Nation: Australia and the Rise of Asia, 1850  to 1939.  Collectively  they address  key themes  in the  Australian response   to  Asia:  survivalist  anxieties,  climate  and  race,  population and immigration,  empty  Australia,  gender  and  bush  mythologies,  and  regional identities. These essays reveal the central, often constitutive role that Asia has played in the formation of ideas of nation and identity in Australia from the late nineteenth  century   to  the  present.   The  collection   underlines   the  often unpredictable character   of  engagement  and  the  fluid  nature  of  fear  and fascination, proximity and distance in the Australia-Asia relationship.  With the recent  publication of a government  White  Paper  on  Australia in the  Asian Century there is a new determination to persuade Australians that “rising Asia,” turbulent though it may be, is an opportunity for Australia more than it is a threat.
