101 mots pour comprendre l'Australie

McGregor, Andrew. "Cultures: Cinéma," in Brown, Peter and Faberon, Jean-Yves (dir.,). 101 mots pour comprendre l'Australie. Centre de documentation pédagogique de Nouvelle-Calédonie (CDP-NC), 2018.

The 101 mots pour comprendre collection offers small encyclopaedias of popularisation while aiming for scientific excellence. This book devoted to Australia brings together all the fields of knowledge over an immense expanse: a remote history, a disproportionate geography, a diversified sociology, plural policies, an original organisation, and all this against a backdrop of ongoing debates... without forgetting that from a specific point of view, that of the neighbouring archipelago of New Caledonia, it is necessary to know how much Australia counts for all Caledonians.
