Publisher Marketing: Excerpt from Labour and Industry in Australia, Vol. 1 of 4: From the First Settlement in to the Establishment of the Commonwealth of the Commonwealth in 1901 The things most nearly affecting the Labour movement in Australia - immigration, land legislation, prices, and political, action - are dealt with herein almost to the exclusion of other matters to which historians usually devote their chief attention, and therefore while this book is a history of Labour it is not a history of Australia. It is based on official records, contemporary newspapers or other publications, and on information obtained direct from many persons who played a prominent part in Australian affairs from 1880 onwards. For the statistics I am my own authority, as also for the account of the banking crisis of 1893 and for some phases of the Labour movement. In compiling this work I have had help from many quarters. I am especially grateful for the co-operation of Mrs. J. St. H. Lander, whose wide knowledge and great industry I cannot praise too highly.
