An insightful and accessible new biography of Alfred Deakin, Australia’s second prime minister

Alfred Deakin -- scholar, spiritualist, prime minister -- was instrumental in creating modern Australia. In the first biography of Deakin in more than half a century, the acclaimed political historian Judith Brett deftly weaves together his public, private and family lives.

She brings out from behind the image of a worthy, bearded father of federation the principled and passionate, gifted and eccentric figure whose legacy continues to shape the contours of the nation's politics.
