Labour History (1997)
  • Rowan Cahill, University of Wollongong
A brief yet detailed account of the life and significance of Rupert Lockwood (1908-1997), Australian journalist, author, historian. During the Cold War, he was one of the best known, some would say 'notorious', Australian communists. Lockwood was the one of the few Australian journalists to report directly from the front lines of the Spanish Civil War, an experience that helped shape his politics.
