About this title:

Synopsis: This first comprehensive history of republican thought and activity in Australia traces debate around an Australian republic from 1788 to the present. It explains the pivotal role played by republican philosophies, both before and after federation, and illustrates the striking similarities between the arguments of both republicans and monarchists in the 1990s and those that existed 150 years ago. Essential reading for all those with an interest in political and intellectual history. It fills a large gap in Australian history and will become the essential work on Australian republicanism.

Review: "McKenna's book is essential reading for students of the comparative history of republicanism who wish to understand how little can hide under a noble concept." Alastair Davidson, American Historical Review

"This is an excellent book. While it is essential reading for anyone who wishes to know the context of the current debate over republicanism in Australia, the book raises much broader issues about the development of self-government, political independence and national identity in settler societies. The book is written in a lively and informative style and combines wide historical knowledge with the ability to marshal information to illustrate specific themes and ideas. McKenna has produced one of the best things to have come out of Australia's current debate over republicanism." Campbell Sharman, Pacific Affairs

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The idea of an Australian republic has existed from the moment the First Fleet sailed into Sydney Harbour. This book is a comprehensive history of republican thought and activity in Australia and traces republican debate in Australia from 1788. It explains the pivotal role played by republican philosophies in the decades before responsible government was granted to the Australian colonies in 1856 and prior to federation in 1901. Mark McKenna also describes the often erratic appearance of republicanism during the twentieth century, focusing in particular on the period after 1975, when the issue of a republic became a prominent and increasingly fixed term on the political agenda. This book will be essential reading for all those with an interest in political and intellectual history. It calls for a higher level of public debate about the republic and makes an outstanding contribution to this debate itself. Seller Inventory # APC9780521576185
