MINT - a NEW copy. Illustrated with Black and White Photographs. 317 pages n 1972, Dr Moss Cass found himself minister responsible for Australia's first Department of Environment and Conservation in Gough Whitlam's newly elected Labor government. This political biography offers an insider's account of a tumultuous time in Australian politics. Cass's story provides a compelling pre-history to many of the key issues in progressive politics today: the environment, refugees, homosexual law reform, the media, and health care. It is also a story about the transformation of the Australian Labor Party: its 'greening' both in regard to environmental politics and its accommodation of new movements for social reform. ID296998

North Melbourne Australian Scholarly Publishing 2016 1925333922 / 9781925333923 1st Edition Trade Paperback 
MINT - a NEW copy. Illustrated with Black and White Photographs and colour plates. 284 pages In the summer of 1936 it all went wrong - for democracy and for Spain, even for the British royals. Politicians failed, and Hitler was emboldened to plan a new European war, and more. Bad decisions were made. Bad behaviour prevailed. Thousands died. Bad people won; not forever, but for a time. There is some joy in those four weeks that summer – much in fact, with Europe on holiday and Berlin en fête – four weeks, however, when it all went wrong. ID292504
