Summary In recent years, political debate about industrial relations has been dominated by the Howard government’s tendency to strengthen the position of employers against employees. As Tom Sheridan’s fine book, Australia’s Own Cold War: The Waterfront Under Menzies, demonstrates, there has been nothing new in Australian history in the Howard government’s concentration on the relationship between business and labour. The long era of the Menzies governments during the 1950s and 1960s was also dominated by industrial struggles and ideological conflict in the workplace.
