The reason in revolt website project.

The Reason in Revolt website project (, which brings together primary source documents of Australian radicalism, has been rescued from insolvency by a five-year commitment from the estate of the late Roger Coates, courtesy of his partner, Barbara Fitzgerald. Roger Coates devoted himself to his great intellectual passion--exploring the roots of the labour and socialist movements, both in Australia and internationally. Roger had an encyclopaedic knowledge of the Australian labour movement and its various strands, radical, reformist and revolutionary, from the 1880s to the 1920s and beyond. The website has been managed since its inception in 2005 by Verity Burgmann at the University of Melbourne, often precariously, but she is now able to offer labour history scholars the opportunity of contributing primary source documents to this website and to be paid for the privilege of so doing. If you have documents you would like to contribute to the website, please contact Verity at
