This subject draws upon primary and secondary sources, including the historical records and findings of national inquiries, to examine the nature of the invasion and subsequent colonization of Australia and the impact of colonial and post federation policies and practices on Indigenous Australian peoples and cultures. It begins with an overview of political, economic and social life in Great Britain during the 18th century, the history of transportation of British and Irish prisoners to offshore penal colonies, including Australia, and the ideologies which supported the expansion of the British Empire.
