History wars and culture wars

History wars and culture wars

The “history wars” are widely viewed, by external observers and participants on both sides as an extension of the “culture war” originating in the United States. William D. Rubinstein, writing for the conservative British think tank the Social Affairs Unit, refers to the history wars as “the Culture War down under”.[109] Participants in the debate including Keith Windschuttle and Robert Manne are frequently described as “culture warriors” for their respective points of view.
