The Colonization of Australia (1829-42) free pdf Excerpt from The Colonization of Australia (1829-42): The Wakefield Experiment in Empire Building A brief piece of autobiography will best serve to explain the purpose of this book. In October, 1912, as a research student at the London School of Economics, I began to study the introduction, in 1855, of responsible government into Australia. Very soon, however, I discovered that this change had been made possible only by a movement for colonial reform which had begun as early as 1829. I then began to examine the work of that extremely able group of men who had then developed theories of colonization, with special reference to Australia, and had succeeded in putting into practice, though imperfectly, many of their theories, of which responsible government for colonies was one. The leader of this group was Edward Gibbon Wakefield, whose name is familiar to every student of land settlement in Australia. On examining the great mass of literature, expository and controversial, which surrounds his theory, I could find no book which seemed to do justice to Wakefield's achievements in colonization and colonial policy. Much of what has been written is polemical in character, and many of the works contemporary with Wakefield are spoilt by an obvious bias for or against him. Writings which were not guilty of these defects were for other reasons inadequate. Herman Merivale's account in his Lectures on Colonization and the Colonies is a fair, critical examination of the Wakefield theory, but at the time when he first wrote, 1839-41, much of the data for a complete survey of the theory was wanting.
