A Little History of the Australian Labor Party

Nick Dyrenfurth, Frank Bongiorno

Acclaimed historians Nick Dyrenfurth and Frank Bongiorno tell the story of the Australian Labor Party's rich history of more than 130 years and examine its central role in modern Australia.

The Australian Labor Party is one of the oldest labour parties in the world and the first to form a government. From the prime ministerships of Watson and Fisher to the tragedies of Hughes and Scullin, through the 1940s legends Curtin and Chifley to governments of Whitlam, Hawke, Keating, Rudd and Gillard, A Little History of the Australian Labor Party recounts times of triumph and failure, as well as resilience.

This updated edition examines Labor's recent performance in state and territory politics and takes the national story up to the Albanese government.
