SYNOPSIS: The man who for eighteen years was Prime Minister of Australia records with wit and humanity his recollections of world events he helped to shape and of the men he met in public life - Churchill, Baldwin, Chamberlain, Attlee, Roosevelt, Kennedy, de Gaulle, Nasser and many others. Robert Gordon Menzies was born in Jeparit, Victoria, in 1894. He read law at Melbourne University and was admitted to the bar in 1918. He entered federal politics in 1934, was Prime Minister of Australia from 1939 to 1941 and 1949 to 1963, when he retired at the age of 71. In 1956 he led the U.K. mission to Cairo to discuss the Suez Canal dispute with President Nasser. Created Knight of the Thistle in 1963, Sir Robert was the first Australian to be so honoured. In 1963 Sir Robert delivered the Jefferson Oration in Virginia, U.S.A. and in 1966 lectured at the University of Virginia. His published works include the Rule of Law During War (1917), Studies in the Australian Constitution (1933), Speech is of Time (1958), Central Power in the Australian Commonwealth (1966) and Afternoon Light. As well as having played a prominent part in Australian and world affairs, Sir Robert is keenly interested in cricket, rarely missing an opportunity to watch a Test match. When not discharging his duties as Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports, an office to which he succeeded Sir Winston Churchill, Sir Robert and Dame Pattie Menzies live in Melbourne. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Ex-Library. Bookseller Inventory # 001057
