Unveiling a less-than-idealistic side of Sydney, Australia, this enlightening account traces the development of the radical movement from The Rocks, New South Wales, in the 1830s to the inner suburbs in the 1980s. Through a series of snapshots, this unique volume will expose the marginalized ideas, bohemian neighborhoods, and dissident politics of the working-class suburbs to the south and west of the city. From resident action movements in Kings Cross to gay rights marches on Oxford Street, this history charts Syndey’s colorful and rebellious past and allows Aboriginal fighters, convict poets, feminist journalists, and democratic agitators to be heard.
