Over the years Peter has served the University as Chair of the Department of Social and Political Studies; President of the Swinburne Branch, National Tertiary Education Union; as a member of the Academic Board, the Board of Research, the Higher Degrees Committee, and numerous other Faculty and School Committees. In 2007, Peter wrote a history of the university, Practical Measures: 100 Years at Swinburne; his Labour and the Money Power (1984) remains the definitive account of Australian labour populism. Peter retired in 2015 but maintains an affiliation with the Politics and History discipline.
