(Gould's Book Arcade published this reprint under the McNamara imprint, initially a joint venture with another Sydney printed word family.)---The dust jacket has a bit of wear, with a stripe of water damage on the front top-edge, and a small tear.

The Split: Australian Labor in the Fifties

Book Condition: Very Good. Hardcover. Jacket Condition: Very Good. Size E: 8"-9" Tall (203-228mm). 388 pages. The page edges are a little tanned and foxed. The Labor split of the 1950s changed the whole shape of Australian politics. Three decades later it still arouses passion and division as its repercussions continue to bedevil the Labor Party and union movement. The Split, widely considered to be the best account of these momentous events, draws on 'inside information' and extensive interviews with participants, many of whom are now dead, to reveal the complex series of events, the intrigues, the dedication and wheeler dealing behind the breakdown. Several copies are available. Books listed here are not stored at the shop. Please contact us if you want to pick up a book from Newtown.
