Labour and the Politics of Empire

Britain and Australia 1900 to the present

Neville Kirk

Published by Manchester University Press

Studies in Imperialism MUP

  • Makes a new and original contribution to two major fields of study: labour and imperial history
  • Makes a significant contribution to the increasingly lively field of new imperial and 'British World' history, that has far too little to say about class and labour history
  • Makes a major contribution to the limited number of studies bringing together British and Australian experience in explicitly comparative and trans-national ways
  • Emphasises nation, empire and race and their engagements with class, gender and politics
  • Based upon a decade of research in Britain and Australia into a wealth and depth of primary and secondary sources, many of them 'new' or neglected
