Summary "Immersed in socialism from birth, Lloyd Ross was intimately involved with the Australian labour movement all his life. Highly regarded by fellow militants and anti-fascist crusaders in the 1930s, he fell out spectacularly with the Communist Party during the war years. He gravitated to a right-wing Labor position and was linked to Bob Santamaria, but in his later years resumed his contacts with militants and socialists."--BOOK JACKET. "Conflict between Left and Right in the Australian labour movement decisively shaped Ross's career and reputation. However, friends and foes alike were energised by his zest and zeal - as a lecturer, journalist, pamphleteer, trade union leader, ALP factionalist, and politicised public servant."--BOOK JACKET
