Congratulations to Diane Kirkby and co-authors for publishing ‘Maritime Men of the Asia-Pacific

Congratulations to Diane Kirkby, Lee-Ann Monk andDmytro Ostapenko for the publication of Maritime Men of the Asia-Pacific: True-Blue Internationals Navigating Labour Rights 1906-2006 (Liverpool University Press, 2022). The book ‘shows seafaring and waterside unions engaged in a shared history of activism for legally regulated wages and safe liveable conditions for all who go to sea. Maritime Men of the South Pacific provides a corrective to studies which overlook this region’s significance as a provider of the world’s maritime labour force and where unions have a rich history of reaching across their differences to forge connections in solidarity.’
