More About This Title Between the Flags


A thorough analysis of 100 years of Australia’s most successful national volunteer movement. Tracing its origin and development as the foundation of Australia’s world-renowned beach culture, Between the Flags explains how and why surf lifesaving enjoys iconic status across Australia, and remains relevant and popular today. Written by a team of sports and social historians, for anyone interested in Australian surf and surf lifesaving culture, Between the Flags is a refreshingly original thematic history. It examines technology, competition, membership, governance, professionalism and lifesaving overseas, as well as the future directions for surf lifesaving.
