Emigrants and Historians: Essays in Honour of Eric Richards

Author(s): Philip Payton

Aust History

In this innovative and ambitious collection of chapters, Philip Payton brings together a distinguished team of international specialists to explore the entwined themes of Emigrants and Historians. Published in honour of Eric Richards, Emeritus Professor of History at Flinders University, the book includes case studies of Ireland and Scotland, an examination of late twentieth-century British emigration, discussion of the impact of Blackstone's Commentaries on legal and constitutional thought in the Anglophone world, and a critical comparison of two major biographies of the controversial Australian historian, Manning Clark. There is also an appreciation of Eric Richards's life and work by Philip Payton, together with Eric Richards's own contribution, where he weaves elements of autobiographical insight into a broader debate on emigration history and the 'mobile academic', especially British historians in Australia.
