2 Volume Set: Hawke: The Early Years and Hawke: The Prime Minister.

D'Alpuget, Blanche.

Picture of 2 Volume Set: Hawke: The Early Years and Hawke: The Prime Minister.
The Early Years has been called one of the finest examples of political biography in Australian literature. Bob Hawke was one of the giants of Australian public life and his story is told with sensitivity and psychological insight. He was an educated man (a Rhodes scholar), a tireless campaigner for worker’s rights, and a man of wild personal habits. His achievements were many, and his commitment to the trade union movement was unwavering. The Prime Minister describes how Hawke wrestles the Labor leadership from Bill Hayden and a few week later wins the 1983 federal election. He had four consecutive terms in office and he changed Australia irrevocably. This portrait of a political leader explores his achievements and shows him to be ambitious, wily, and absolutely brilliant. Illustrated with b/w and colour photographs.
