9780195546217: No Paradise For Workers : Capitalism and the Common People in Australia, 1788-1914

The first of two volumes offering a radical history of capitalism in Australia, this book analyzes the social and political relations of the economic system that British imperialists first imposed on the original Australians 200 years ago: from the country's beginnings as a colonial prison to the consolidation of pastoral capitalism and emergence of the organized working class and the incipient manufacturing industry that preceded World War I.
