Renegades and Rats

Betrayal and the Remaking of Radical Organisations in Britain and Australia

Jacqueline Dickenson
Accusations of betrayal played a significant role in the shaping and maintenance of solidarity in socialist and other modern radical political organisations in Australia and Britain. This fascinating study of trust and betrayal focuses on case studies of 6 'rats' or renegades: H.H. Champion; William Trenwith; John Burns; Albert Victor Grayson; Adela Pankhurst Walsh; and Ada Holman.
Renegades and Rats will appeal to scholars of history and sociology alike, and to anyone interested in the subject of trust: what it is, and how it is lost.
