Menzies and the Art of Politics
Robert Menzies remains Australia’s longest-serving prime minister and the only one to leave office at a time of their own choosing in the past 50 years. According to Troy Bramston’s revelatory biography of Menzies - the first published in 20 years - it was his clear philosophy and mastery of the art of politics that made him so successful. Troy Bramston talks to Annika Smethurst about the man who created the Liberal Party and continues to cast a long shadow over it.
