Item description for The Great Labor Schism: A Retrospective by Brian Costar...
Fifty years ago, the Australian Labor Party suffered a devastating split which shaped Australian politics for a generation. This anthology provides an array of perspectives on this divisive moment from key personalities such as H. V. "Doc" Evatt, Frank Hardy, Archbishop Daniel Mannix, and B. A. Santamaria. Examining the influence of the Catholic church in the split, the media reporting at the time, and the states' various responses, these essays identify the tenor of the times as well as the long-term consequences of the schism.
