Title: The Making of the Labor Party in New South Wales, 1880-1900
Description: Australia, NSW University Press. 1989, First Edition. (ISBN: 0868403709) Soft Cover, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. "Dr Markey characterises the Party in the 1890's not as one might expect, dominated by urban trade unions, but rather as populist not only in ideology, but populist too in social composition because of the importance of small landowners to its success. He digs beneath this, to examine the relationship between the Party and the unions, and the leaders and the rank and file of both and to relate the political and industrial behaviour of workers to their actual working and living conditions. Ultimately, he argues, this is the only way in which we can understand how a group of pragmatic, professional politicians and small landowners representatives overcame the more class conscious socialists and union militants for the control of the Party." CONDITION 327 pages with historic b/w photos. Crisp unread and unworn copy. As New/N/A.
