In 1954–55 the Australian Labor Party suffered a devastating split which shaped politics in this country for a generation. A traumatic event in the lives of many Australians, the Split not only tore apart former political allies and trade unionists but divided Catholic from Catholic, and friend from friend, and even rent individual families.
Fifty years on, this chapter examines the perspective of the role played by B. A. Santamaria.
