A unique volume of speeches and occasional pieces written entirely by former Australian Prime Minister Paul Keating.
Paul Keating was Australia's Treasurer (1983-91) and Prime Minister (1991-96). He championed a clutch of seminal changes to the country, including the reorientation of Australia's strategic and trade relationships with Asia, promoting Australia's shift to a republic, the development of a major legal structure to return lands to Australia's indigenous people and significant fiscal reforms which underpinned twenty years of economic growth. Paul Keating maintains his interest in politics, economics and foreign policy and contributes occasionally to the public debate. He is committed to aesthetic interests in architecture, the decorative arts and the romantic repertoire in classical music.
