Edited by Charlie Fox, Bobbie Oliver and Lenore Layman

The editors of this collection have chosen 31 short and fascinating stories of radical moments in the cities’ past from as long ago as the 1890s and as recently as Occupy: ‘Bloody Sunday’ battles on the wharves, the Chinese community’s fight for survival, Perth’s Red Dean and his rock masses, bodgies and widgies at Scarborough’s Snake Pit, Midland’s Red Square, women’s apron parades in the 1950s, Fremantle’s Rajneeshees, the Point Peron Women’s Peace Camp, and many more. This book records Perth and Fremantle’s radical pasts, uncovering the obscure and neglected, and re-framing the better known, as well as mapping Perth and Fremantle’s radical geographies. This engaging and informative book inspires those who work for change and opens new windows on Perth and Fremantle’s pasts. In short, it has rewritten their histories.

A Western Australian publication proudly supporting WA authors, publishers, and printers.

Contributors: Charlie Fox, Bobbie Oliver, Lenore Layman, Jenny Gregory, Janis Bailey, Geoff Davis, Andrea Gaynor, Bri McKenzie, Suellen Murray, Chris Owen, Alex Salmon and Alexis Vassiley.
