Billy Hughes: Prime Minister And Controversial Founding Father Of The Australian Labor Party by Aneurin & William Hughes.
 
@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop *-* Book exchange #Pattaya
 
Billy Hughes served as Australia's Prime Minister between 1915 and 1923; a time of great change (between the Great War and the start of the Great Depression).
This definitive biography fully examines the life of one of our prolific leaders.
Not only exploring his life as a young boy and his relationship with his wife and family, it will also look at those aspects of his term which we may not know a great deal about.
Billy Hughes founded the CSIRO in 1915, he was a member of the Australian House of Representatives for 51 years; he founded the Australian Labor Party.
He had 101 secretaries (still a record!)... and much, much more.
A beautifully-packaged biography of one of the most controversial leaders in our Australia's short history.

Appreciation to Daveo for posting them. 

50+ straight posts and not a single thank you or good read says it all.  If anything my posting will give life to this thread.  Keep posting Daveo, I enjoy a good book now and again, but the spacing between me reading/buying books is becoming farther and farther
