As much as this is a biography of Sir Charles Court and his family, it is a history of economic development and politics in the post-war era in Western Australia. Sir Charles' promotion of large mining projects including iron ore, natural gas, nickel, gold, alumina and diamonds has shaped the Australian economy which is now heavily dependent on Western Australia's mineral wealth. Indexed with a foreword by Geoffrey Blainey.
