Description - The English in Australia by James Jupp

Australia has historically had very strong links with England, and the English have always accounted for a significant portion of the Australian population - yet, until now, this largest immigrant group has never been analysed in detail. James Jupp provides fascinating new insights into the impact the English have had on Australian life, in the first book ever written on the subject. Beginning with familiar stories of convicts, explorers, and early settlers, and then the various waves of immigration over the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the book concludes with reflections on today's English immigrants, now considered 'foreigners'. Anyone interested in tracing their ancestry - both Australian and English - will find this book compelling reading, and helpful in bringing to life senses of the places, conditions, and occupations that their ancestry lived through.
