“Foreword by Joseph Lyons: Primarily, this Case for Union is a reply to the Case for Secession published by the Government of Western Australia.  A reply to that Case, however, involves much more than a mere challenging of the specific facts therein alleged, which, though many in number, cover a very small part of the whole field of vision.
The Case for Union, though its pages are fewer, takes a wider sweep.  It presents so far as its brevity allows, a comprehensive view of what Federal Union has already accomplished for the people of Australia, and of what it bids fair to accomplish – not only in helping the industrial development of the continent and strengthening the powers of the people to cope with the difficult social and economical problems of the day, but also in giving to Australia a national outlook and an assured status in world affairs.”
