(1 Ratings)
On they came again, and now they closed with the soldiers, who were forced to use their rifle butts, even their bayonets, to repulse the ju-jitsuing fiends. 1912: The Japanese Empire invades... More > Australia. Race riots break out in Sydney! Western Australia secedes from the Federation! Civil War erupts! Abandoned by its allies, Australia must defend its racial purity. A vigilante army - the White Guard - is raised to fight a guerilla war in the Northern Territory. The spokesman stepped close to Colonel Ireton: "Take care," he hissed, "Japan is stronger than your Commonwealth." First published in 1909, The Australian Crisis depicted a dystopian future for the "White Australia" of its day. Today the book, while objectionable in its racism, offers insight into the development of Australian identity and science fiction in the early 20th century.
