xvi + 264 indexed pages including b/w illustrations. A detailed history of the Sydney 12 members of the radical union Industrial Workers of the World, opponents of WWI. They were arrested in 1916 and charged with treason, arson, sedition and forgery. Workers launched a mass campaign in favour of their release. But two of them executed on 20 December 1916 at Bathurst Gaol, the first executions in New South Wales after a decade.First written in 1967, this is the revised 1969 edition with lots more information. In fact, this is a much larger book and a text which the student of Australian political history and every person interested in Australia can accept as authentic and accurate. Although, to a small extent, this is a black spot on our history it is something we ought to know more about, if only to ensure that never again will the political climate of opinion be allowed to sway justice or be permitted to deny it to any person. That justice prevailed in the end, because of the number of people and organisations that protested, is another matter for grave consideration. Had there been nothing but apathy there would have been no justice. Truly the price of liberty is eternal vigilance. There is a name in the first page and moderate wear in the cover and small chips in the upper edge of the spine.
