The Making of the Labor Party in New South Wales, 1880-1900

Front Cover
New South Wales University Press, 1988 - Labor - 327 pages
Fried (American literature, Kent State U.) examines the portrayal of the American city in the writings of Jacob Riis, Lewis Mumford, James T. Farrell, and Paul Goodman, four authors whose works are centrally concerned with the urban experience, and who find in the city and its institutions the power to generate and preserve human values. Dr. Markey (U. of Wollongong) challenges conventional ideas on the origins of the Labor Party in Australia by characterizing the Party in the 1890s as populist in ideology and in social composition (many small landowners) rather than as dominated by urban trade unions. Acidic paper. Available in North America from ISBS. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
