Imagining the Nation
This book began as a PhD thesis at the Australian National University, and so my first thanks must go to my supervisor and colleague Alastair Greig, who has been a consistent supporter and constructive critic and who I am now lucky to call a friend. Also at the ANU, David Bissell, Emmeline Taylor, Kate Lee-Koo and PhD comrades during my candidature have been supportive and generous. John Hutchinson and Greg Noble pro- vided very helpful comments on the thesis that I hope have improved the final product. At Peter Lang, Paul Ward has been invaluable as a series editor, a genuine pleasure to work with who has made this a much better book (although the inevitable mistakes I can only pin on myself ). Lucy Melville has been patient and extremely helpful, making the whole pro- cess run as smoothly as my miscalculations would allow. I also must thank the following archives and libraries for vital assistance: the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament collection at the London School of Economics Archives; the Anti-Apartheid Movement collection at Rhodes House in the Bodleian Library, University of Oxford; the Women’s Library at London Metropolitan University; the Trustees of the Mass Observation Archive, University of Sussex; the Newspaper Archives of the British Library; the National Archives in the UK; the National Library of Australia; and the Library of the ANU. If it takes a village to raise a child, it might also take one to write a book. Very special thanks are due to my parents...
