520 1  This book covers the missionary activity in Australia 
       conducted by non-English speaking missionaries from 
       Catholic and Protestant mission societies from its 
       beginnings to the end of the mission era. It looks through
       the eyes of the missionaries and their helpers, as well as
       incorporating Indigenous perspectives and offering a 
       balanced assessment of missionary endeavour in Australia, 
       attuned to the controversies that surround mission 
       history. It means neither to condemn nor praise, but 
       rather to understand the various responses of Indigenous 
       communities, the intentions of missionaries, the agendas 
       of the mission societies and the many tensions besetting 
       the mission endeavor. It explores a common commitment to 
       the supernatural and the role of intermediaries like local
       diplomats and evangelists from the Pacific Islands and 
       Philippines, and emphasises the strong role played by non-
       English speakers in the transcultural Australian mission 
       effort.  This book is a companion to the website German 
       Missionaries in Australia - A web-directory of 
       intercultural encounters. The web-directory provides 
       detailed accounts of Australian missions staffed with 
       German speakers. The book reads laterally across the 
       different missions and produces a completely different 
       type of knowledge about missions. The book and its 
       accompanying website are based on a decade of research 
       ranging across mission archives with foreign-language 
       sources that have not previously been accessed for a 
       historiography of Australian missions.
