From jitterbugging and "Big Brother" to the introduction of television and the rise of file-sharing, this study explores the ways in which popular culture has developed and changed in Australia from the end of World War II to today. In order to understand the massive social and cultural changes that have taken place Down Under, popular culture is examined through three main lenses: consumerism and the development of a mass consumer society, the impact of technological change, and the ways in which popular culture contributes to and articulates individual and collective identities. Providing the first integrated account of Australian post-war culture, this reference analyzes film, television, sports, music, and leisure in relation to each other rather than as stand-alone cultural forms.
