Abstract

The conservative politician, Douglas Darby's long service to the extreme Right in Australia spanned almost the entirety of the Cold War. Darby's reputation as a powerful advocate of right-wing causes from strikebreaking to Captive Nations and the war in Vietnam was unsurpassed. Despite this advocacy, a study of Darby's political career suggests that he remained largely isolated and powerless on the Right.
