Blanche D'Alpuget:
Hawke: The Early Years - Paperback

2010, ISBN: 0522858007

[SR: 5515274], Paperback, [EAN: 9780522858006], Melbourne University Publishing, Melbourne University Publishing, Book, [PU: Melbourne University Publishing], 2010-12-30, Melbourne University Publishing, Robert James Lee Hawke is one of the great men of Australian public life and his story makes compelling reading. Blanche d'Alpuget's sensitivity and psychological insight into Hawke's early years reveal how the son of devout Christian parents was reared to public duty and to the ambition of political leadership. Known throughout his life as a tireless campaigner for workers' rights and a man of wild personal habits, Hawke was a Rhodes Scholar, educated in three universities, before rejecting an academic career to commit himself to the trade union movement. As President of the ACTU from 1970 to 1980 he was a master negotiator and peacemaker in industrial life. He agitated for social and economic reforms, becoming a folk hero and the most popular Australian of his time. While he was President of the Australian Labor Party he sought to heal its wounds after the sacking of the Whitlam government; as the leader of Australia's unions he held back potentially violent industrial action over this most divisive issue. To unionists he was a giant killer; to some employers, a crypto-Communist bent upon their destruction. Hawke: The Early Years is an intimate portrait of a man of extraordinary achievements who struggles to overcome his drinking and philandering in order to rise to the highest office in Australia., 758960, Australia & New Zealand, 758932, Countries & Regions, 268021, Historical, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 659896, Biographies & Memoirs, 659886, Biographies & Histories, 68, Business, Finance & Law, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 659912, Human Resources, 659922, Appraisals & Evaluations, 659932, Coaching & Mentoring, 268307, Human Resources Management, 659916, Interviewing & Recruitment, 659924, Professional Development, 659914, Training, 268290, Management, 68, Business, Finance & Law, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 271319, Australasia & Pacific, 271326, Australia & New Zealand, 12447566031, Oceania, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 275870, Government & Politics, 275890, Civil Liberties & Political Activism, 496554, Countries & Regions, 496870, Economics, 275885, International Institutions, 275882, International Relations, 275901, Political Science & Ideology, 275915, Political Structure & Processes, 275941, Reference, 60, Society, Politics & Philosophy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books

An intimate portrait, this account reveals how the son of devout Christian parents was reared to public duty and to the ambition of political leadership. It details Hawke’s many achievements—as president of the Australian Council of Trade Unions as well as of the Australian Labor Party—and demonstrates how an extraordinary man struggled to overcome his drinking and philandering in order to rise to the highest office in Australia.
