Annotation

Warning against invasion; “Its intention was to awaken the people of Australia to the tragic possibilities of apathy towards adequate defence measures” (Book i). Australia turned into an authoritarian dystopia by the invaders, who are identified as Cambasians. The “Prologue” to the novel, dated July 15, 1975, makes clear that after the loss of five million “white inhabitants” in the fight back, Australia was once again independent.
