Event Details

Please join us for the launch of the first volume of John Curtin’s War, a new biography by Lowy Institute Nonresident Fellow John Edwards, published by Penguin Viking.

Using much new material, John’s vivid, landmark biography places Curtin, Australia’s wartime leader, as a man of his times, puzzling through the immense changes in Australia and its region released by the mighty shock of the Pacific War. The biography locates the turning point in Australian history not at Gallipoli or the Western Front or even Federation, but in the Pacific War and Curtin’s Prime Ministership.

Former Prime Minister Paul Keating will launch the book with a speech on Curtin and political leadership.
