An Underestimated ManBook - 2009
Hoping to set the record straight, this biography asks why one of Australia's greatest reformers has sunk into obscurity. Calling for a reevaluation of Andew Fisher's career, the discussion reveals the skill with which he led the Australian Labor Party in its early years and the political will he demonstrated as prime minister in three separate Australian governments leading up to World War I. Fisher's role as high commissioner in London during the war is also given careful attention.
