Benjamin T. Jones is a historian at the University of Western Sydney.
"Jones makes a unique contribution in coining the concept of `Christian Civic Republicanism'. The comparative perspective is especially welcome. I enjoyed reading it and highly recommend it to readers, both specialist and general." British Journal of Cana "Benjamin Jones makes a welcome intervention into the history of the coming of responsible government to British colonies in Canada and Australia. The contrast and comparison between Canada and Australia is most welcome, as is the use of recent scholarship to provide an original interpretation of a well-trodden historiographical path."
