Becoming John Curtin and James Scullin

The book explores pivotal moments of Australian history that are directly linked to key points history and politics, the vision of the Australian nation and nationhood between Federation and 1914; the policies that were introduced to pursue this vision (especially by Labor); the race and gender based exclusions from this nationhood; the First World War and its effects (especially the conscription campaigns). As the book demonstrates, well before becoming Prime Ministers Curtin and Scullin were significant figures in these formative events

It is written with a narrative structure and accessible style that makes it suitable and appealing for leaders and students.
