Records and archival arrangements in Australia are globally relevant because Australia's indigenous people represent the oldest living culture in the world, and because modern Australia is an ex-colonial society now heavily multicultural in outlook. Exploring this distinctiveness, using the theoretical concept of societal provenance as propounded by Canadian archival scholars, the book's seventeen essays blend new writing and re-workings of earlier work, comprising the first text to apply a societal provenance perspective to a national setting.
