John West (1809-1873) was an English-born minister who received a Colonial Missionary Society post in Tasmania in 1838. West became an outspoken opponent of the ongoing government policy of transporting convicts from Britain to Tasmania. Around 1847 a wealthy supporter approached West to write the colony's history, although it had been a British territory only since 1803. West accepted the task and, amid his campaigning and other responsibilities, completed this two-volume work which was published in 1852. It is divided between a straightforward narrative of events and thematic issues such as the treatment of the Aboriginal peoples and the issue of the convict transport system. In Volume 2, the first ten sections discuss the early encounters with Europeans and the subsequent mistreatment of the native people in Tasmania. The remainder of the volume considers the island's development as a penal colony

John West's 'Union among the colonies' by John West( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

It is often forgotten that the federation of the Australian colonies had been discussed for some fifty years before it was finally achieved in 1901. John West - clergyman, public figure, newspaper editor - was one of the first major advocates of federation. Drawing on his experience as a leader of the successful intercolonial movement against the renewal of the transportation of convicts to Australia, West, in a series of articles, argued the case for federation. These articles, published in the 'Sydney Morning Herald' in 1854 under the title 'Union Among the Colonies', maintained that federation was necessary for the colonies because it would allow them to combine strength with freedom. A theorist of the 'checks and balances' school who signed the articles 'John Adams' after the one-time American president, West believed that the American federal system provided a model for Australian colonies seeking to maintain the essentials of the British system of government. These articles provide a cogent argument for federalism that is still relevant in the twenty-first century, not least because the idea of 'checks and balances' remains central to any discussion of contemporary Australian politics
