Green, Bill, Hodgens, John, & Luke, Allan (1994) Debating literacy in Australia : a documentary history, 1945 - 1994. Australian Literacy Federation, Sydney, NSW.


A documentary history of 'literacy' as an issue, topic and problem in the Australia print media, 1945-1994. The accompanying critical analysis makes the case that 'literacy crises' in Australia have arisen during periods of major socioeconomic, cultural and geopolitical upheaval and change, with schools and teachers, youth and families the object of 'blame' for such changes.
