Epigraph
Dedication
First words
PREFACE -- This book seeks to stress those elements in Australian history which have been most influential in giving the inhabitants of the country a sense of their own distinctive identity, and so in making a new nation.
FOREWORD (by Robin W. Winks) -- Australia is a land of geographical superlatives which, despite great sweeps of distance and a strategic location off the south shores of Southeast Asia, has remained historically mute for most Americans.
Quotations
Stricter party discipline [beginning in the 1890s] both reduced the area for devious maneuver available to individual members and made them more responsible to their electors--or at least more responsible to the fixed principles for which the electors now knew the fixed parties claimed to stand. p. 90
