It has been ten years since the 1999 Republican referendum failed. Whilst it was ultimately unsuccessful, it has engaged people in a debate that has spanned a decade. Australians seem to want a republic, but there is uncertainty about what kind of republic we want. If we wish to understand the implications and future of republicanism, we need to know more about it. Choosing the Republic explores how the people in a constitutional monarchy may choose to become a republic, delving into republican philosophy, the history and practicalities of constitutional change, and the politics of popular debate.
