The overriding theme is the distinctive Australian perspective on empire. The countrys adherence to imperial ideals and aspirations involved not merely the building of a new Britannia but also the forging of a distinctive new culture and society. It was Australian interests and aspirations which ultimately shaped Australias Empire.While modern Australians have often played down the significance of their British imperial past, the contributors to this book argue that the legacies of empire continue to influence the temper and texture of Australian society today.
