Best We Forget: The War for White Australia, 1914-18 description

The official clamour to venerate Australia’s WWI campaign and the heroic sacrifice of the Diggers grew louder as the centenary of the war came and went. In his important but unsettling new book, Best We Forget, one of Australia’s most respected historians Peter Cochrane reminds us that an important motive for our participation in the war was our desire to preserve White Australia from Asian "contamination".

Chair: George Megalogenis
