The fathers of federation who betrayed the ideals of the people by leading the Australian colonies into a nation state that was commonwealth in name only were merely a cultural pattern which had already, and inevitably, been fashioned by the imperial relationship between the metropolitan centre and its proconsular outposts. No part of society maintained this pattern more consistently than the publishers and booksellers who exploited an Australian market held captive by its distance from the owners of capital; this remains the present position.
