William Lane and ‘New Australia’: A Reassessment

Labour History: A Journal of Labour and Social History (1997), 72, (1), 1–18.

Abstract

William Lane’s move to Paraguay in 1893 has been variously misunderstood by Australian historians. This move was not an aberration, but a natural consequence of his self-proclaimed place in a long tradition of international utopian socialism. His development as a utopian socialist, and the form and content of his beliefs, can be traced through an examination of his life and writings. When placed in this context, Lane’s words and deeds take on a consistency and meaning which is otherwise lacking, and new light is shed on the nature of his ‘New Australia’.
