Well we never thought this day would come. It has been years in the making, and a struggle of epic proportions, that has seen hopes dashed upon the rocks of academia on many an occasion. But the perseverance of our University’s historians Dr Nancy Cushing and Dr James Bennett, with the sustained attention of expat Professor Erik Eklund, has finally produced Radical Newcastle the book.

Radical Newcastle is a collection of essays by leading scholars, local historians and present day radical activistss that documents both the iconic events of the region’s radical past, and less well-known actions seeking social justice for workers, women, Aboriginal people and the environment.

The book will be officially launched during 2015’s Hunter Writers Festival in the Newcastle Town Hall on 22nd March at 3pm, where it will be available for sale to the wider community.

It will be launched by the UON Vice-Chancellor Professor Caroline McMillen, at a session hosted by Dr Nancy Cushing, and featuring local identities Mrs Vera Deacon, Daniela Heil and Professor John Maynard.

For Radical Newcastle writers and contributors, who provided articles that couldn’t fit into the book, or had to be edited down, and to those who didn’t make the ‘deadline’, please remember that you can always send us the full version of the article for inclusion on the blog, please consider that option.
