197 indexed pages including b/w illustrations. This text discusses republicanism as an historical, cultural, political and even social principle in Australia. These themes are developed through several perspectives: an examination of a hidden and implicit republican history; the several prior attempts to develop an explicit republican movement; the changing nature of Australian culture in a developing multicultural and post-colonial society, and the newly-developing notion of citizenship. This book is not concerned with the political or legal issues of the organization of government, but rather with the history and culture of republicanism in Australia. It asserts that republicanism is not a recent phenomenon - the book aims to show that republicanism is already deeply ingrained in Australian political history and in the cultural manifestations of politics. It shows that republicanism is more than merely a debate about the monarch as head of state, and involves issues of political participation, cultural formation, hidden traditions and national identity. Table of Contents: Part 1 The map: tracking the republic, Mark McKenna. Part 2 The first Republicans: good government and self-government - the republicanism of John Dunmore Lang, Don Baker; for the faith that is in them - Charles Harper and the idea of a republic, Elizabeth Perkins; "sons of the morning" - Daniel Henry Deniehy's trustees of the coming republic, David Headon; who were the Republicans?, Helen Irving. Part 3 Republican memoirs: discovering our republican heritage, Robin Gollan; a communist or worse, Geoffrey Dutton; confessions of a colonial, Al Grassby; arguing the toss, Alison Broinowski. Part 4 The coming event: the new republican temper, Stuart Macintyre; can subjects be citizens?, John Hirst; addressing the republic, Malcolm Turnbull; Australia and the question of national identity, Irene Moss. Part 5 Ancient principles to global citizens: civic humanism and republican virtue - an aristocratic ideal, Graham Maddox; "res publica" and citizen, Alistair Davidson; planetary republicanism, Wayne Hudson. Part 6 The echo across the way: Mr Boston's pig and Mr Keating's republic, James Warden.
