Soldiers in Politics

New or Used: $32.00
Australia's past is studded with senior military figures who have been active in shaping the nation's political direction and institutions at both federal and state level. Apart from those who have held seats in parliament, there have been those who have served as governors and governors-general, those who led pressure groups and those who participated in organisations operating behind the scenes, such as secret armies. Soldiers in Politics offers insights into a previously unanalysed and unrecognised aspect of Australia's national development that will inform and sometimes surprise the reader. This book also forms a valuable basis for debate on important questions about the nature of leadership and the role of the military in this country's system of government.
