This Time: Australia's Republican Past and Future

Author(s): Benjamin T. Jones


To propose an Australian should be our head of state doesn't seem revolutionary. 'Isn't that already the case?" some may even ask. Flip a coin and you'll have your answer.

In This Time, Benjamin T. Jones charts a path to an independent future. He reveals the fascinating early history of the Australian republican movement of the 1850s and its larger-than-life characters. He shows why we need a new model for a transformed, multicultural nation, and discusses the best way to choose an Australian head of state. With republicans leading every government around the nation, the time is ripe for change.
