Summary:

This book examines the relationship of the Australian colonies with Britain and the Empire in the late nineteenth century, and looks at the beginnings of Australian nationalism. It is the first detailed study of the formative period 1880-1900. As the debate about an Australian Republic becomes more heated, this book is a timely reexamination of the colonial character of Australia's federation and Australia's incorporation into an imperial framework.
