The Neighbour from Hell: Two Centuries of Australian Imperialism, Interventions, Melbourne, 2014
Tom O’Lincoln is a long-standing contributor to Australian political and historical discussion from the Marxist and Trotskyist perspective. Here he considers Australia’s history of participation in the practice of imperialism and colonialism through the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. His premise is that Imperialism is the international expression of the continuing conflict between capital and labour. In regard to Australia, this covers territorial claims in the Pacific and right through to the military component of the 2007 Intervention by the Howard Government in Australian indigenous communities in the Northern Territory.
