This Time: Australia's Republican Past and Future

Author(s): Benjamin T. Jones


In this crisp yet comprehensive book, Benjamin T. Jones explores Australia's long republican history and boldly charts a path to an independent future.With republicans leading every government around the nation, now is the time to discuss not only why Australia should become a republic, but what kind of republic it should be.In This Time, Benjamin reveals the fascinating early history of the republican movement of the 1850s and its larger-than-life characters. He discusses Australia's past as a predominantly Anglo monoculture and why we need a new model for a transformed nation. He demolishes monarchist arguments and discusses what went wrong in 1999 and the way forward from here, including the best method for appointing an Australian head of state.
