About the Authors
  • The 1890s in Australia were a time of social and industrial upheaval. They also nurtured a flourishing radical culture: anarchists, socialists, single taxers, feminists and republicans. This book, informed by feminist and cultural studies, recreates that political and social vision and shows the radicals' influence, and their resonances in the 1990s.

    • A historian using the insights of feminist theory, cultural studies, literary studies and poststructuralism
    • Focus on themes still being debated: feminism, the republic, unemployment, citizenship, labour politics
    • Uncovers the lost culture of the 1890s, suggesting alternative interpretations of a critical era in Australian history
