'In cutting through the lantana of egos, power games and betrayals, Tom Bramble' and Rick Kuhn's history of the Labor Party succeeds in rescuing a salutary story of political Australia that ought to be read by all generations.' John Pilger, award-winning journalist and documentary maker
'A veritable tour de force. Not since Vere Gordon Childe's How Labour Governs, published nearly 90 years ago, has the ALP been subjected to such a searching analysis. This book raises serious questions not just about Labor but about the very dynamics of Australian society, and cogently demonstrates that class is far from a dead issue. It is a most worthy - and long overdue - companion volume to Childe.' Norman Abjorensen, political historian
'This book is a no-holds-barred assessment of the ALP as a 'capitalist workers party' that stands in the way of any prospect for socialism in Australia. It is recommended reading for anyone wanting to understand the Labor tradition in Australia and a socialist critique of its limits.' Frank Stilwell, Professor of Political Economy, University of Sydney
'A controversial and combative critique of Labor that fills a gap in the existing literature on the ALP.' Carol Johnson, Professor of Politics, University of Adelaide
