AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This book is the second volume of Graeme Davison’s family history that began with his Lost Relations: Fortunes of my Family in Australia’s Golden Age (2015), following his mother’s line. This book traces Davison’s paternal line. The title comes from a bequest left to Davison by his great aunt Cissie Davison who bequeathed the clock to his father and then to Davison on his death. I will always remember this clock because in late 2017, I had the pleasure of listening to Davison deliver a keynote lecture on his family history research at the National Library of Australia during a conference on family history. He ended his talk in song, encouraging the audience to join him in a rendition of My Grandfather’s Clock, which they did, enthusiastically. As one of my students said, it was a ‘moving moment for all involved’.' (Introduction)

It is fitting that our special issue on ‘Ruptured Histories: Australia, China, Japan’ spans both festivities, incorporating the two poles that haunt this collection: (largely) white Australia and an ever-surging Asia.'
