Rowan Cahill (born 1945) is an Australian radical historian and journalist with background as a teacher, and farmhand, and has variously worked for the trade union movement as a rank and file activist, delegate and publicist. During the Vietnam War he was a conscientious objector, and was prominent in the anti-war, student protest, and New Left movements of the period, primarily as a publicist and communicator. These activities led to him being placed under surveillance by the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO). Cahill has been widely published in socialist, trade union, academic and mainstream publications; he has written numerous pamphlets and booklets, and is the author or co-author of six books, including a history of the militant Seamen's Union of Australia (1981). Between 2001 and its final issue in December 2006, he was a regular contributor to the internationally acclaimed Sydney based labour movement online journal Workers Online. He works as a part-time teaching academic at the University of Wollongong, New South Wales.<!-- Missing image removed: -->
