GROWERS IN ACTION. Official History of the Victorian Wheat & Woolgrowers' Association, 1927-1968.
Mitchell, George H.
The Hawthorn Press. Melbourne 1969 1st Edition
 Hard Cover With illustrations, a very good copy in very good dustjacket. The Victorian Wheatgrowers' Association later the Victorian Wheat and Woolgrowers' Association was born of The Great Depression of the late 1920's. The Association's forty years span the most turbulent in Australian farming history. Growers In Action tells how the Association fought for Wheat Stabilisation, orderly marketing of wool and meat, and generally in the interests of growers. It is the story of an agricultural pressure group, run by nearly 12,000 rank-and-file grain, wool and meat producers. It is a story of heartbreak, determination and success. Growers In Action is a study of a farmers' industrial organisation of members and their democratically-elected leadership of effort. It makes no apology for the Association's non-party political pressure group activities on behalf of its members. It is the first study of this important and militant organisation's contribution to Victorian and National rural life. Growers In Action should be read by anyone seeking an understanding of the complex issues facing Australian primary industry today. ; 250 x 155mm; vi, 356 pages Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket
