Our First Republicans

Our First Republicans

Selected writings of Lang, Harpur and Deniehy 1840-1860

Edited by David Headon and Elizabeth Perkins

CONTENTS

Lang, Harpur and Deniehy were three of the most outspoken proponents of the Australian Republic in the mid-19th century. Their arguments — concise, powerful and balanced — are as relevant today in current Republican debate as they were then. This edited selection of their prose brings together for the first time articles, speeches and letters which show the political and cultural currents in NSW over three decades of important political change.
