In The Gauche Intruder, Jennifer Rutherford traces the formation of an Australian moral code at the heart of white Australian identity. Advocating an ethics of desire in opposition to morality, she demonstrates the link between morality and aggression in the history of white Australia, showing that aggression has historically manifested itself at the very moment when white Australia has set out to do good. The Gauche Intruder provides a first introduction to the social and political significance of Lacan’s Ethics of Psychoanalysis.

“Jennifer Rutherford presents us with a passionate, scholarly, rude and uncompromising discussion about Australian culture, reading identity at both individual and collective levels . . . she is an astute and forthright literary and cultural critic . . . a canny, amusing, serpent-toothed reader of the broader Asutralian culture.” —Australian Book Review
“A critical work unusual in it depth and insight, well worth a slow unwrapping by amateurs of local literature, culture or politics.” —Higher Education Supplement
