Social Democracy and the Agrarian Issue: Australia 1870-1914
AbstractThe dramatic rise of the Australian Labor Party (ALP) as the single largest electoral force in the country between 1890 and 1910 has traditionally been associated with the mobilisation of the votes of the urban and mining working class. However, this paper argues that, in fact, the ALP relied heavily on support from farmers and rural workers for its parliamentary success. The pattern of rural supprot for the ALP was affected by the varying geography of land tenure and of rural industry.
