The acclaimed and controversial biography of one of Australia's most loved prime ministers, Ben Chifley.
Many of the policies that his Labor government introduced after the Second World War came to define modern Australia. These include a mass immigration scheme, the beginnings of a free health scheme, the opening up of access to university education, the Snowy Mountains Scheme, a greater engagement with Asia, and a commitment to civil liberties amid the anit-communist hysteria of the time.
Illustrated. Includes bibliography and index.
