Pressestimmen"Published posthumously, this well-written "prequel" is a comprehensive and original discussion of the colonial peopling of Australia from 1788 to the 1850s. ... All libraries interested in environmental history, economic theory, and 19th-century British or Australian development should aquire this book. Upper-division undergraduates and above." Choice "This volume is perhaps most original for its foray into the largely unexplored topics of early public finance in Australia and the effect of British fiscal policies. It adds appreciably to the corpus of Butlin's work." American Historical Review
