Our names are listed alphabetically on the title page to indicate equal co-authorship. We would like to thank our families, friends and colleagues for their support during the writing of this book. The book draws on research and articles on Australian national identity written over the past 15 years. Previous articles have been cited, revised and new data analysis and evidence have been included. Chapter 1 builds on research we published in Nations and Nationalism in 2003 (Tranter & Donoghue, 2003); Chapter 3 draws upon our research on Ned Kelly in the Journal of Sociology (Tranter & Donoghue, 2010a); Chapter 4 similarly draws upon our Anzacs article in the Journal of Sociology (Donoghue & Tranter, 2015). Chapter 5 is based upon our article on Sir Donald Bradman and sporting heroes published in National Identities (Donoghue & Tranter, 2016); while in Chapter 6, we refer to our article on Important Australians in the Journal of Sociology (Tranter & Donoghue, 2015a, 2015b).
