0 Reviews
Admired and reviled, for more than thirty years Robert 'Ming' Menzies stood at the centre of power in Australia. His concerns and political style influenced two generations; from the beginning of his long political career he grew to dominate the practice and language of Australian politics. The first of two volumes, this book documents the early years of the brilliant lawyer, who came to be known as 'Pig-Iron Bob' and who was to create the Liberal Party from the ashes of the UAP, becoming a towering figure in post-war Australia.
