America has been seen by the rest of the world as fulfilling the gleaming promise of modernity and, paradoxically, as the nightmarish fate threatening to undermine global diversity. Rather than emphasising American hegemony and Australian cultural vulnerability, this collection of essays explores the negotiation of influence and power involved in Americanization abroad.

Americanization and Australia is a rigorous investigation of identity politics with interpretations by specialists in such diverse fields as popular culture, law, government, film, literature and language.
