.... Even though Australian and Canadian governments now agreed on the necessity of developing individual external relations and policies, their wartime relations were not especially harmonious. Australia was dismayed that Canada sent few troops to defend it against Japan. Personal relations between Australian and Canadian diplomats were also strained, in part because of the abrasive personality and ‘shin-kicking’ diplomatic style of Herbert Evatt , Australia's minister for External Affairs ( 1941–49 ). Charles Ritchie , a long-serving Canadian diplomat, spoke...

...shock of the French Revolution began to abate. By 1835 the Whig Colonial Secretary, Lord Glenelg ( 1778–1866 ), could acknowledge the futility of choosing ‘any one Church as the exclusive object of public Endowment’ in Australia, and the Colonial Office discouraged plans for the further endowment of Anglican rectories in Upper Canada. It is a measure of the limits of the alliance between the imperial government and Anglicanism after 1776 that nowhere in the empire was the Church of England formally made the established church. Though, as we have seen,...

...of the local even as they enumerate a daunting number of potential new sources. Teasing out the strands of local, national, and international history remains a desideratum, one that will probably await the completion of histories in other former colonies, including Australia and Canada. Allen Curnow, New Zealand’s most famous poet, memorably characterized New Zealand as a ‘small room with large windows’, and the publishers, readers, and writers of New Zealand will undoubtedly maintain their tradition of a strong local sense of place mediated by a broad...

...that there was a strong early market in India from the 1820s to the 1840s ( see 39 ). In the early 1850s , however, Australia became a significant consumer of British books: by 1868 the weight of books being shipped to Australia was five times greater than the weight to India ( see 44 ). The export trade suffered reversals in the Australian financial crises of 1883 and 1890 . Exports to British North America (later the Canadian Federation) grew in the late 1860s , so that by 1868 the tonnage to North America was double the Indian trade ( see ...

Revell et al., “‘Themself’ and Nonsexist Style in Canadian Legislative Drafting,” 10 English Today 10 [ 1994 ].)
