Billy Hughes : Prime Minister and the Controversial Founding Father of the Australian Labor Party - Aneurin Hughes

Billy Hughes

Prime Minister and the Controversial Founding Father of the Australian Labor Party

Sorry, the book that you are looking for is not available right now.

We did a search for other books with a similar title, and found some results for you that may be helpful.

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.
