Books by Bennett, James

Rats and Revolutionaries: The Labour Movement in Australia and New Zealand 1890–1940

ISBN: 1 877276 49 9

Australia and New Zealand are closely connected by both geography and history. One cultural quality they share is a fixation on what lies to the north, and a 'reciprocal amnesia' about their near neighbours. Few historians in either country have examined the shared history. In this book, James Bennett looks at the labour movement in the two countries during the period when it was emerging.
