The Premiers Of Queensland

Picture of The Premiers Of Queensland
For more than a century, Queensland's volatile political scene has been dominated by tough, uncompromising leaders - by larrikins, wowsers and visionaries. Beginning with the premiership of Robert Philp and ending with Peter Beattie, this new edition for the first time explores the complete evolution of political leadership in the sunshine state. The Ahern, Goss, Borbidge and Beattie premierships have now been added to a definitive series of studies of the leaders who have shaped Queensland politics since Federation. Throughout this invaluable book, specialist historians and political commentators analyse the premiers' individual styles and assess their most significant contributions.
