Australia has historically had very strong links with England, and the English have always accounted for a significant portion of the Australian population. In this 2004 book, James Jupp provides fascinating insights into the impact the English have had on Australian life. 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'James Jupp has presented his overview of this fascinating topic in an accessible, scholarly style, which is also suitable for those with no prior extensive knowledge of Australia or its historical background. ... The English in Australia is an illuminating and scholarly read.' Zeitschrift fur Australienstudien
"That promoters of an Australian national identity, whatever their ilk, have had a tense reltaionship with ideas of Englishness and continue to do so is certainly a topic worthy of further study. What The English in Australia brings to that study is a careful demography of England-born migration. Scholars wishing to gather this kind of inofmration from a straightfoward and well-written package will appreciate this work and general readers interested in their own Englishness should enjoy the skillful way Jupp toggles between the national histories of Britain and Australia as they relate to English migrants." - Danielle C. Kinsey, University of Illinois
