    Written by John Edwards, adjunct professor at the John Curtin Institute of Public Policy at Curtin University and author of Keating: The Inside Story, this biography of John Curtin, our country's 14th prime minister, is long overdue and very welcome. In the first of two volumes, Edwards takes the story of one of our most underrated leaders from the late-19th-century socialist ferment in Melbourne through to his struggle for power against Joe Lyons and Bob Menzies, his appointment as prime minister two years into WW2 and his determination to be heard in Washington and London as Japan seemingly inexorably advanced towards Australia. Riveting reading.
