Australian Civilization - 1,674 words
A countrys foreign policy is only partly the result of decisions made by its government: it is mainly imposed by circumstances. Australia, during the last fifty years, has been a country unsure of its place in the world. She has been bouncing from ally to ally, begging for a place under their umbrella of protection, ignoring and denying her place in the Asian region, and struggling to find a foreign policy that is in the best interest of her welfare and security. Australia truly finds herself, pardon the pun, stuck on a rock in a hard place. The Asian region in the past half-century has been an atmosphere of turmoil and unrest. Communism threatened Australias way of life and the fragile nati ...

... year later. The ANZUS treaty signed by Australia, New Zealand, and the United States in 1951 represented the security blanket Australia had been desperate for since the end of the Second World War. The ANZUS treaty has since become the cornerstone of the Australian foreign policy.15 Originally, the treaty was supposed to act as a protection from the powerful forces of Japan. But soon after ANZUS was signed the Japanese realized the strength of such an agreement and decided to sign a peace treaty with Australia as well. In 1952 Australia and Japan signed their own treaty for peace, and with this signing ended the age-old threat of Japanese invasion. This enabled Australia to work with Ja ...

He gazed aloofly at two kiwala bears slothfully chewing at shards of green moist grass. These kahwala bears also had their faces turned toward the sun warming themselves in its rays. Karl laid there; watching as a brightly colored gecko skirted toward the pond's edge. It was a bright orange with little black specks. The gecko proceeded to immerse itself in the water and then slide out quickly; repeating this motion several times. Watching this gecko, Karl Ward the platypus realized he was hungry. He waded through the water searching as he always did for the little grubs ...

Australian Identity - 1,472 words
Identity is a debate that many Australians are still arguing today. After all these years of living in Australia, the identity of the country is still something that cannot be agreed upon. Though many seem to have their own idea of what an Australian is, there is no clear cut view of this thus the conclusion that an Australian is a myth can be formulated. Thus, many people of Australia feel as if they should aspire to be citizens of the world instead. Its the phrase on everyones lips: Australian identity. What is it? To find out what Australian identity is, you first must look for certain evidence based on customs and traditions as well as rites and rituals. But the problem with this is that ...

In the new electronic age, we are relying more and more on information technology to streamline government, educate our children, make health care more accessible and affordable, and make our businesses more productive and competitive.

There is increasing awareness, both in Australia and overseas, of the privacy implications of new information technologies. This has led to mounting pressure to ensure that those technologies are introduced in ways which respect the expectations of individuals in relation to the handl ...

Females will come into season approximately every 6 months and will need to be confined for 2-3 weeks during this time.

Aboriginal Customary Laws And Australian Contemporary Laws - 582 words
Aboriginal customary laws, before white settlement in 1788, were considered primitive by the British, if considered at all. But Aboriginal laws and customs had lasted hundreds of years, based on traditions such as kinship ties and rituals. These laws were formed by ancestors, spirits, and Aboriginal beliefs, and were passed down the generations by word-of-mouth instead of written down. Being over 500 tribes (each with it's own clans) in Australia at one point, there were many variations to their guidelines, customised to each area of the land. Although the laws varied throughout the ages, this way of life remained until white settlement. The roots of Australian laws are similar to traditiona ...

Australian Art 1930-1960 - 2,543 words
The environment was major contributing factor to the evolution of Australian art in the 20th century. The elemental landscape; isolation and distance, the imposition of the mythical and the visionary on the landscape, national identity (the universal and the regional) and the demise of Arcadia and romantic idealism interweave magnificently to present the impact of surroundings on the artwork of such a then delicate nation. In retrospect it was the surroundings/climate/atmosphere/feeling and people of our unique nation that undoubtedly shape what we know as Australian art sure there are direct influences from other cultures, but while knowing this we have to understand that a perfect combinat ...

European Cultural Hegemony And Australian Aboriginals - 1,049 words
The relationship between the indigenous people of Australia and their native lands are essential to their traditional culture. The colonization of their nations by Europeans has lead to a destruction of this relationship and therefore of indigenous cultural practices and norms. This process was predicated upon European cultural norms and established a cultural hegemony of European culture over indigenous culture. The effects of this cultural hegemony by mainstream Australia can be observed through a series of social indicators. Therefore these social indicators can be used to demonstrate the nature of cultural hegemony on the indigenous peoples of Australia. Cultural hegemony is a concept de ...
