Description

On a political level, Chifley is a Labor icon who vies with Curtin for the top place in the party's pantheon of heroes. Like Curtin, he was admired across political boundaries. As Prime Minister from 1945-1949, he established many of the policies that became an accepted part of Australian life - mass immigration, full employment, the Snowy Mountains Scheme, extention of tertiary education, to name just a few. On a personal level, Chifley's early childhood is reminiscent of Albert Facey's, sent from his parents' house to live a primitive rural life with his grandfather. Then there was the tragedy of his childless marriage and his long-term relationship with another woman in whose company he was destined. This book is a political biography with a touching human story.
