Formatted abstract
Queensland has always been known for its extremes. Though this often takes a naturalistic quality – from the sheer size of the state to its extreme disparities in climate and weather – a propensity for radical politics is another of its supposed eccentricities. This idea, part of a broader thesis on Queensland’s ‘difference’, ignores not only the importance of international ideas and actions on the tradition but also the real divisions which exist. A primary discontinuity can be seen between a late nineteenth/early twentieth century radicalism, centred on primary production and union-based struggles for wages and conditions, and a late twentieth century movement to the metropolis with activism around issues like civil liberties and the war in Vietnam taking centre stage. Yet this apparent rupture hides some nuanced continuities – both in the transnational nature of the activism itself and in the role gender has played in such struggles.
