Australia’s Empire

Neville Meaney

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the ways Australians evoked a British past as a corollary to their sense of themselves as an offshoot of the British race. It identifies three distinct phases in the evolution of Australia’s British history. These include the early colonial era typified by liberal republicanism, the Glorious Revolution, and the great reform movements of the 19th century. This chapter also discusses the changes in the conception of Australia’s Empire and the emergence of race patriotism and social Darwinism.

Keywords:   Australian history, British Empire, colonial era, liberal republicanism, Glorious Revolution, reform movements, race patriotism, social Darwinism
