"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
