Very Good/Good. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall Hardback Before his second term as Prime Minister, Menzies became the only Opposition Leader in the last half-century to be suspended from Australia's House of Representative. Yet it was while he was Opposition Leader that his part in Parliamentary broadcasts led members of the New South Wales Institute of School Inspectors to suggest that his way of speaking could be accepted as the standard for Australian speech. Rapidity of thought and riposte helped him put his case to Australian voters with clarity and humour that no rival approached in his sixteen years as Prime Minister-a record continuous term for a freely elected national leader in any country. Illustrated with B/W photos. Slight shelf wear and small tear to edge of D/J. Slight browning to D/J.
