The Spanish Anarchists of Northern Australia analyzes a little-known community of migrants and political radicals. This book reveals hidden political and social histories, which challenge assumptions about early twentieth-century Australia and reveal a dialogue between events in the Spanish- and English-speaking worlds, giving voice to a forgotten history.

Review Quotes
William Douglass, University of Nevada

 “Robert Mason has crafted an essential text for our understanding of both Australian political history and multicultural Australia. The narrative moves masterfully between the fascinating biographies of the key anarchists (particularly Salvador Torrents) and sub-ethnic and generational distinctions (early settlers versus newcomers) among the ‘Spaniards’ that conditioned their distinctive actions and attitudes in Australia to twentieth-century events—most notably the Spanish Civil War.”
