Settler Society in the Australian Colonies

Self-Government and Imperial Culture

Angela Woollacott

  • Looks at the history of the whole Australian Continent, rather than just focussing on New South Wales
  • Places Australian history in a global and imperial context
  • Links gender to the achievement of colonial democracy, and shows that debates over gender were just as important to the Responsible Government as they were to the Federation.
  • Uses life stories of both men and women to explain important political and cultural changes
