Epigraph
Dedication
It would be a long list indeed if I were to set out the names of all those who have worked tirelessly in the cause of the republic. I have had, as always, unstinting support in this endeavour from my wife, Lucy, and my two children, Alexander and Daisy. And while Alexander and Daisy have only given a few speeches in support of the republic, it is to them that I dedicate this book; for just as the republic is the cause of Australia so is it the cause of the future. And the future, as always, belongs to the young.
First words
January 26, 1988. Sydney Harbour was glittering in the bright sunshine. A million Australians crowded the fore-shores. ... it was Australia Day, the two hundredth anniversary of the day that Captain Arthur Phillip of the royal navy founded the convict settlement at Sydney Cove.
