In This Time, Benjamin T. Jones charts a path to an independent future. He reveals the fascinating early history of the Australian republican movement of the 1850s and its larger-than-life characters. He shows why we need a new model for a transformed, multicultural nation, and discusses the best way to choose an Australian head of state. With republicans leading every government around the nation, the time is ripe for change.

' Benjamin T. Jones' This Time takes us to the high ground of political argument. His republic is one that institutionalises and promotes the values of democracy, meritocracy and community not just in our constitution but also in the many symbols we need to unite and inspire our citizens, including our flag, our coins and our national anthem.' --Geoff Gallop, former premier of Western Australia ' If you want to think, for the very first time, about why Australia needs an Australian head of state, this is the book for you. Passionate, provocative and patriotic, this is the book we all need for the republic we have to have.' --Clare Wright, historian 'Powerful and compelling. This is the book we've been waiting for. Jones has written the most passionate and coherent argument for an Australian republic in decades.' --Mark McKenna, historian ' This is an important Australian book about an important Australian campaign. Benjamin T. Jones tells the republican story as it should be told - the story of Australia's long journey towards its own best self.' --Michael Cooney, national director of the Australian Republican Movement
