Description - Anglicanism in Australia by Bruce N. Kaye

Anglicanism in Australia is an important contribution to our social history. Its authors have moved beyond biography and histories of individual congregations to create a broad, complex, layered history. They assess Anglicanism's contribution to Australian social, political and cultural life. The book begins with a fascinating and thoroughly researched narrative account - which moves from the arrival with the First Fleet of an Anglican military chaplain, right through to the 1990s. Along the way it charts the nineteenth-century church buffeted by the pendulum swings of 'state aid'; the nationalistic fervour of wartime, and the political radicalism of the 1960s. In its second half, Anglicanism in Australia looks at Anglicans dealing with a broad spectrum of issues: the family, questions of gender, Indigenous peoples, the visual arts, the search for a national identity.
