What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Trainor's writing is succinct and knowledgeable....It is entirely to [his] credit that his volume scans so many dark areas so clearly and judiciously." American Historical Review

"...Trainor has provided us with a thoughtful and innovative study of the white colonial mentalite^D in the context of the gathering tensions of the late nineteenth-century world." International History Review

"Trainor has certainly succeeded in making a strong case for the importance of imperialism in Austalia's development in the 1880s and 1890s, a wide-ranging. partially home-grown imperialism which penetrated deep into the fabric of Australian life." Canadian Journal of History

"The comprehensiveness of the study and the soundness of its judgments make it a valuable resource." Thomas E. Tausky, Australian and New Zealand Studies in Canada

"...sound and very informative." Times Literary Supplement

"Trainor is to be applauded for working up perspectives that were not once part of his outlook. His assertions also warrant serious consideration." Robert Kubicek, Albion
