Australian political lives : chronicling political careers and administrative histories by J. R Nethercote( )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph brings together some of the best practitioners of the art and craft of political biography in Australia. They are simultaneously some of our best scholars who, at least in part, have turned their attention to writing Australian political lives. They are not merely chroniclers of our times but multidisciplinary analysts constructing layers of explanation and theoretical insight. They include academic, professional and amateur biographers; scholars from a range of disciplines (politics, history, sociology, public administration, gender studies); and politicians who for a time strutted the political stage. The assembled papers explore the strengths and weaknesses of the biographical approach; the enjoyment it can deliver; the problems and frustrations of writing biographies; and the various ways the 'project' can be approached by those constructing these lives. They probe the art and craft of the political biographer

Menzies : the shaping of modern australia by J. R Nethercote( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No Prime Minister did more to shape modern Australia than Sir Robert Menzies. His watershed election victory in 1949 marked the start an unprecedented period of progress, population growth and rising living standards. The contributors to this important work take a fresh look at Menzies' influence and legacy. They conclude that Australia's post-war success was not pre-destined but was driven by the ambitions of an industrious middle class empowered by the principles of freedom Menzies upheld. The message for today's Australia is clear: innovation and enterprise - not government - hold the key to future prosperity
