‘Britain, China, and Colonial Australia’

Congratulations to Benjamin Mountford, whose book Britain, China, and Colonial Australia (OUP) will be published in January 2017 and is now available to preorder. The book draws on a range of previously unexplored UK and Australian archives to provide the first detailed study of Australian and Chinese interaction with the British Empire in the long nineteenth century. It offers new insights into Australia’s place in the British Empire and its role in shaping migration history and sets the story of Australian engagement with China within the wider context of nineteenth century Pacific, transnational, and global history.
