'A very important piece of work. Frank Bongiorno . . . has rescued the early Laborites from the judgment of historians who have frequently seen only failure and compromise.' -- Charles Fahey, Senior Lecturer in History, La Trobe University
'Here Frank Bongiorno rethinks the formative phase of Victorian Labor, reconsiders its languages and forms, and gives us fresh insight into the continuities and discontinuities of popular politics. His combination of close research and rigorous analysis offers fresh insights that will interest all students of labour history.' -- Stuart Macintyre, Ernest Scott Professor in History, University of Melbourne
