In Transnational Ties: Australian Lives in the World, an eclectic mix of scholars (historians, literary critics, and museologists) trace the flow of ideas that connected Australians to the global community of thought.  The book shows how biography, and the study of life stories, can contribute greatly to our understanding of such patterns of connection and explores how transnationalism can test biography's limits as an intellectual, professional and commercial practice.
