The English in Australia

by James Jupp
     
 

Concentrating on immigration and settlement from England and on the declining influence of the English over two centuries, this book studies "the English" in Australia. As the largest group originally making up the Australian population, the English have been traditionally considered as the "norm" and thus rarely has the English influence been studied in detail.

Overview

Concentrating on immigration and settlement from England and on the declining influence of the English over two centuries, this book studies "the English" in Australia. As the largest group originally making up the Australian population, the English have been traditionally considered as the "norm" and thus rarely has the English influence been studied in detail. However, they might now very likely be seen as a "foreign" element.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"That promoters of an Australian national identity, whatever their ilk, have had a tense Δionship with ideas of Englishness and continue to do so is certainly a topic worthy of further study. What The English in Australia brings to that study is a careful demography of England-born migration. Scholars wishing to gather this kind of inofmration from a straightfoward and well-written package will appreciate this work and general readers interested in their own Englishness should enjoy the skillful way Jupp toggles between the national histories of Britain and Australia as they relate to English migrants." - Danielle C. Kinsey, University of Illinois
