An Australian in China in a powerful example of how photography and text works in tandem to maintain this distance. In Figure 1 for example Morrison is centre stage, and careful to respect a protocol of space and distance. But of course we, the readers, know Morrison is the white outsider who is also a comfortable insider, albeit an insider who is also slightly outside and in control.

This paradoxical position denotes how the white body can never mask itself completely and nor does it attempt to. Protected by a kind of cultural camouflage, the Orientalist can go about accumulating knowledge of his environment, while at the same time re-enforcing Western epistemologies. Confucian values are selectively praised when they facilitate British Imperial influence in China, but he sees not use for it outside of this context.

When he reached British Burma, Morrison would write that his heroes among the British administration were the young officials he met along the way. Nowhere in the world, not even in Macao, is there a greater intermingling of races. For Morrison, therefore, class was at least equally important in running an empire as race. In other words, Morrison provocatively and ironically suggests that these white men had a duty to serve the Empire through miscegenation.

Ordered interaction must appear natural, necessary and harmonious Hill But in the white colonies of Australia hybridisation was understood to result in the complete demise of the white race. Morrison resisted this notion to some extent due to his confidence in his own strength to survive contagion with the other. In this sense, his Anglo- Australianness was never erased by his Chinese dress, but was facilitated by it.

Writing of British accounts of climbing Mount Everest, for example, Stephen Slemon identifies a grand narrative of Western border patrolling.

A racist cultural taxonomy in turn could justify different political policies. For the Empire to hold together, differences need to be defined, the menacing distinguished from the passive. But beyond this racist determinism in the economic and political sphere, Morrison echoed a softer socio-cultural view of colonial tolerance. In short Morrison descriptions of Chinese women hint that China was willing to be taken by the masculine West.

Such an idealisation of the Burmese half-caste and praise for Chinese female beauty are acceptable because, in the end, they are harmless to the white order of the Empire. More menacing is the political and economic threat of the Chinese male worker. An Australian in China reveals not so much a cynical desire that Australians must get to know Asia in order to do business with them, but in some of its passages to some extent unlearns the racist Asian stereotypes so many Australians had grown up with.

This shopping list of exotic novelties suggests Asia is a vast cultural emporium of pleasure and disgust that Morrison is ambivalent towards from the beginning. Thus a Eurasian Australia, and Australia with Chinese, is clearly not viable. While it was politically acceptable to appear an exotic Oriental- colonial, it was threatening to a definition of Australian citizenship based on the white race.

Cultural hybridity could not be extended into condition of Australian citizenship. China, for Morrison, was both the thing he admired and feared, the sign of both Sinophilia and Sinophobia, and this ambivalence was reflected in or fed his readership, which was keen to learn from his extraordinary experiences in China, a country which evoked both fascination and fear. His writing reflects the difficulty of bringing together this bifocal vision of two imbricated spaces, China and Australia. Works Cited Anderson, Benedict. New York: Verso, Bakhtin, Mikhail.
