In Rockchoppers, Edmund Campion examines the influences on the tribal group of Australians and finds that they maintained their links with the Irish-Australian church that had given them a people's religion, rich in symbolic language and strict in its morality.
Outside the church, an unfriendly society seemed to menace them. In response, they turned to their own defensive structures such as the B A Santamaria movement. In exploring the experience of Catholics in colonial culture, Champion provides insights into the wider issue of religious minorities finding their place in a pluralist society. (back cover)
