Australian Left Review


Dick Makinson who died in January, and Helen Palmer who died in May, both in their different ways contributed to the intellectual and cultural life of Australia and of the Australian socialist movement. Dick was a Communist Party member from the ’30s until his death, while Helen was a member for nearly 20 years until her expulsion in 1956 for seeking open discussion of the crimes of the Stalin period. We publish, as tributes, orations at their funerals by Peter Mason and Jack Blake.
