Chapter Two moves from methodology and historiography to substantive matters. It seeks to re-capture the neglected radical transnational world in which Mann and Ross lived and worked and aspects of their contribution to its development. The chapter is broken down into the following sections: globalisation; proletarian ‘globetrotting’ and the spread of radicalism; individuals, circuits, encounters and networks; the trans-Tasman ‘community of labour’; the Pacific rim; radical connections between the ‘old’ and ‘new’ worlds; Mann’s and Ross’s relationships, networks and influences. The chapter maintains both that a radical transnational world existed, especially during the period of ‘free-trade globalisation’ between 1850 and 1914, and that Mann and Ross, albeit more so the former than the latter, made a major contribution to its character and development.
