Literary Agent

A New Brittania

by Humphrey McQueen

Humphrey McQueen’s irreverent classic traces the origins of the Australian Labor Party. In charting the social forces which nurtured the ALP, he shows it was anti-socialst from the very start. Along the way he reveals a colonial passion for pianos and uncovers the proto-fascist ideas behind Henry Lawson’s popular writings.
