Honest History update

AHA affiliate Honest History has just posted new material on a 1967 Vietnam War protest on a surfboard, the marriage equality debate and Australian progressivism, the stodgy and unimaginative program of Armistice Centenary grants, Carmen Lawrence’s 2006 book Fear and Politics and its continuing relevance, and the FBI’s harassment of Australian historian Les Jauncey. There are reviews of books on Charles Todd, the Overland Telegraph man, and on the impact of World War I on Armidale, NSW. There’s also a link to a review by Anna Clark of The Honest History Book, plus the popular Centenary Watch, including notes on the Australian War Memorial’s new (and rather out of context) exhibition of photographs of World War II veterans, and on the Stetson-wearing singer Lee Kernaghan and his wide range of interests.
