Summary:
  • The 1890s were a watershed in Australian history, a time of mass unemployment, bitter industrial confrontation and sweeping social change. They also nurtured a flourishing radical culture of anarchists, socialists, single taxers, feminists and republicans. In this innovative new study, Bruce Scates reappraises these radicals and the troubled world they belonged to. A New Australia draws out many of the striking resonances between the 1890s and the 1990s, reinforcing the book's pressing contemporary relevance.
