On 25 August 1833, the chartered transport Amphitrite set sail from London, its 16 crew, 100 female prisoners and their children bound for an Australian convict colony.

This erudite account of the tragedy also examines the Admiralty’s investigation of the captain who, inexplicably, refused help offered from the shore.

In this masterly study of national consciousness, language and literature in late Tudor England, Brennan explores patriotism and discusses its nature, the different modes of cultural expression it finds, and analyses its use in political and relgious propaganda. She draws a distinction between nationalism and patriotism and sets out to examine the connotations of patriotism in its own right, rather than as nascent nationalism.
