Sydney Morning Herald, Nation

culture politics australia journal

an independent journal published fortnightly in Australia from 1958 to 1972. It was founded and funded by T. M. Fitzgerald, Financial Editor of the Sydney Morning Herald. His contributors were ‘free to say anything they wished’ as long as they substantiated it by fact or argument. Nation was liberal but essentially middle-class, commenting freely on all aspects of culture as well as domestic and international politics and business matters. The journal began to lose ground at the beginning of the 1970s. Its importance was in providing the main independent comment on politics, economics, and culture in Australia throughout the 1960s.
