Published as a part of Australia 1788-1988: a bicentennial history. 106pp. Stapled in wrappers, as issued. A very good clean copy. Articles: 'The History of the Swan River Guardian, or, The Death of the Free Press in WA in 1938' (Margaret Anderson & Andrew Gill); 'Terminology, hegemony and the Sydney press, 1838' (David Webster); 'Mr Beverley Suttor publishes his poems and gets laughed at' (Elizabeth Webby); 'Culture in the "embryo kingdom": poetry in the Port Phillip newspapers 1838-39' (Mimi Colligan); 'Development expectations in 1838 in Wellington district (Bunbury), WA' (Charles Staples); 'The Seamen of Australia' (Frank Broeze). ***A product of the research for the 1838 'slice' of The Australians: a bicentennial history, The Push from the Bush was the only publication of this bicentennial project to outlive its immediate purpose (thirty issues were published 1978-92) and it helped to pioneer 'a type of methodology which is now ubiquitous in this country'.
