In Anzac Nations: The legacy of Gallipoli in New Zealand and Australia, 19652015, author Rowan Light examines the myth-making around Anzac and how commemoration has evolved. Anzac Nations examines three key aspects: the changing and contested meanings of Anzac from the 1960s to the 1980s; the expanded role of the state in commemoration since 1990; and responses to these shifts by Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities. Light brings together stories and evidence from both sides of the Tasman, offering a sweeping panorama of memory that includes writers and filmmakers, protestors and prime ministers, and public audiences who have come to see Anzac Day as their own.
