Gollan, RA

Radical and Working Class Politics: A Study of Eastern Australia, 1850-1910, Melbourne University Press, Carlton, Vic., 1960; later editions

Like Ward’s Australian Legend, a pioneering work which set up a particular image of Australian society and politics which influenced many later writers and students. An early review is here and later comments on the book’s significance and the development of the Australian labour movement and its history generally are here and here (from Labour/Le Travail, Canada, 1983).
